The article provides information on Fargesia specie Scabrida, a kind of bamboo found in the rain forests of Pingwu, in Northern Sichuan, China. It was first documented in the 1970s by Professor Yi of Chendu Forestry College and was introduced to the west by Jos van der Palen of Kimmei Nursery, Netherlands. Growing over 10 feet tall, Scabrida changes color throughout a season and can tolerate more sun and frost than any other specie. The author believes that Scabrida can help promote bamboo as a practical choice for the American home and garden.
