Phyllostachys Aurea, or golden bamboo, has a wonderfully vibrant golden stem with evergreen foliage. At first the stems start green, then they mature to a bright golden yellow. This bamboo is perfect for screening, hedging and creating wind or sound breaks in the garden, but it can grow fast and may need containing if planted in the gorund. It will do best in a full sun or partial shade in a moist but well drained soil. Bamboos are very thirsty and will require regular watering during the growing season. The potential height for this Bamboo is 7m and the potential spread is 4m after 10 years growth.
