Info Kimmei:

-nitida  Fargesia nitida 'anceps', 'Chienevieres', 'De Belder', 'Eisenach' Gansu 95/2 'McClure' and 'Nymphenburg' have flowered everywhereand are no longer sold. Different clones of Fargesia nitida were flowering and this time there was, as in natural situation in China, cross fertilization. Such fertilization generally makes stronger and more vital offspring. And there was the unexpected opportunity to use the oldFargesia murieliae as one of the parents. This 'Phoenix' who actually should have died 10 years earlier was rejuvenated by tissue culture in the laboratory and some plants still were alive and flowering by these hormonal disturbances. So, this "super clone" unexpectedly plays an important role in hybrid fertilization with Fargesia nitida. With the good properties of both species.
