Fargesia dracocephala ‘Rufa’ full sun  partial shade

A favored snack for giant pandas and an airy elegant spectacle for any gardener, ‘Rufa’ is one of the most hardy and versatile noninvasive Bamboos available. Prominent, rusty red paperlike sheaths and long narrow, deep green leaves enhance polished graceful culms. Unleashing numerous new shoots each season, this vigorous Bamboo can be utilized as a year-round star specimen or planted en masse as a privacy hedge. Regular water and protection from hot afternoon sun ensure its success.

Size: 8' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
