    Fargesia dracocephala 'Rufa' is a beautiful and extremely cold hardy clumping bamboo plant from Sichuan Province, China. It is one of the first bamboo plants to shoot in the spring and has bright orange-red shoots that really stand out. Unlike many hardy clumping bamboos, Rufa is able to handle full sun without leaf curl. The tightly clumping growth habit, and ability to grow well in sun or shade, make Rufa a good choice for someone wanting a bamboo plant that is easy to grow with little maintenance.  Plant Rufa on 4 to 8 feet centers and cut out the top 1/3 height of the perimeter canes to create a compact privacy hedge.

    Like all aureas, Koi is a drought tolerant and dense bamboo which makes an excellent thick screen. The culms are yellowish orange with green stripes along the sulcis groove and some red on sun exposed and new culms.
