Rufa Bamboo Growing and Maintenance Tips

This bamboo grows best in an average to dry, well-drained soil, in full sun or light shade. Depending on the location in the landscape, it may need protection from the hot afternoon sun. Clumping bamboo can move sidewalk slabs etc., so position them wisely.
