Neither snow, nor wind, nor rain, nor multiple frosts have put a damper on this bamboo. We planted Fargesia rufa 'Green Panda' (from Song Sparrow) in 2006 and it has performed beautifully. It is a clumper and is almost at its mature size of 6-8 ft. high x 8-10 ft. wide.
That's a pair of dwarf Ginkgos inside the chicken wire cages. Don't know if critters are likely to munch on them but I'm not taking any chances.
