    Fargesia dracocephala 'Rufa' is a beautiful bamboo from Sichuan Province, China. It has orange-red culm sheaths that add a glow to its overall appearance. Rufa is an extremely cold hardy bamboo, and one of the few hardy clumping bamboos that can handle direct sun without leaf curl.  Fargesia dracocephala 'Rufa' is one of the fastest growing clumping bamboos, and one of the first to shoot in the spring. When the top 1/3 of the perimeter canes are topped, 'Rufa' stands upright, and creates an excellent, fast establishing, compact, privacy hedge.

    Denudata is a very rare form of clumping bamboo from Sichuan, China. It has tiny delicate leaves on gracefully arcing light green culms that branch out after the first year. The combination of gently arching canes and petite leaves makes this bamboo very desirable. Fargesia denudata is still quite rare. Though delicate in appearance, it is a very hardy clumping bamboo.

    Fountain bamboo is similar to Fargesia murielae except it has darker culms. The culms are a dark mahogany color with a bluish white powder when young. This is a great bamboo for the lazy gardener. It is tough, beautiful and clumping. Like Murielae, Nitida flowers every 120 years or so and recently flowered so it should be another 100 or so years before it flowers again.
