Very strong, clumping bamboo which stays green in winter (not a spreader!!). Fargesia rufa tolerates pruning well and can produce a thick, evergreen hedge within a few years. It produces plentiful shoots and grows faster than other Fargesias. The red, protective sheaves on the stems are very marked and attractive during the yearly production of new shoots.
After a severe winter this will be one of your best green plants!
