Bamboo Fargesia Rufa 3: Fargesia Rufa is one of the first shooting Bamboo of the year this coupled with its vigorous growth rate, giving numerous new culms annually make it an ideal choice for a growing Bamboo, it is one of the lower growing varieties, only reaching an absolute maximum of 3 metres, which although is 10 feet this is relatively short in terms of Bamboo. Ideal for planting in a wide range of conditions but preferably somewhere away from hot midday sun in warmer areas of the Uk.

Bamboo Fargesia can be planted in any free draining soil damp soil preferably out of hot midday sun (in warmer areas of the UK ) and sheltered from strong winds. In early spring feed with a liquid food with a high nitrogen content, this will help promote new growth and give the plant a boost after the dormant period. In summer a slow release fertiliser is preferable. As with most plants, especially Bamboo always ensure the plant has an adequate water supply especially when planted in a container. This Bamboo requires no special treatment or requirements during the winter months.
