A newly discovered Fargesia with new culms that have attractive rusty reddish sheaths and a non-invasive root system. This introduction is proving to be one of the most hardy and versatile clumping bamboo in the landscape. It is a shorter Fargesia, only about 10 feet tall when mature, but a vigorous grower, sending up many new culms each season. The new 1/2-inch diameter culms of this Fargesia leaf out early in the summer, making it an excellent choice where its rapid growth is desired. Like Fargesia dracocephala and Fargesia robusta its leaves do not curl in the sun, but it is hardier than either of these. Yet like all Fargesias it should be planted with protection from the hot afternoon sun, especially in warmer climates.  Not for climates with high heat and humidity (southeastern states). Green Panda is the trademark name for a single specimen of Fargesia sp. 'Rufa' that was selected originally by Jan Oprins of Bamboo Select in Belgium. He chose this particular plant, based on its exceptional vigor and beauty, to be the subject for tissue culture propagation. Bamboo Select has made thousands of plants with identical genetics to the original favorite which has proven very successful in landscapes all across Europe.  (Source: Bamboo Garden)
