    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.

    We are very excited about this new introduction. Scabrida is a very hardy and robust plant with orange culm sheaths that gradually fall off revealing beautiful steel blue and lavender culms which age to an olive green. The leaves are longer then both Fargesia robusta and Fargesia rufa. Scabrida is very upright for a hardy clumper and able to handle more direct sun then most other Fargesia.
