Fargesia rufa

Clumping Bamboo

This non-invasive clump-type bamboo makes an attractive specimen or, in groups, creates an excellent hedge. The orange-red cane sheaths over olive green, polished canes, add interest to this very vigorous, cold hardy selection. Canes are .5in diameter.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Originating from Sichuan Province, China, and exceptionally cold hardy, 'Rufa' has beautiful orange-red sheaths adding a glow and warmth that is very appealing. Its small stature makes it a perfect specimen for small gardens and courtyard plantings. A prolific shooter, with leaves that do not curl in the sun.
