    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.

    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.

    * Max Culm Dia .5"
    * Evergreen to  -26C
    * USDA Zone 5, Root Hardy to Zone 4

    * 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.
