Price: €29.00
Delivery only in Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare or Meath.

A vigorous and attractive bamboo with green-gold stems and light green leaves. This is probably the most popular of the Phyllostachys bamboos available in Ireland, with light green leaves, good resilience to winds, and attractive green-golden stems. Like most bamboos,  it prefers fertile, moist to damp soils, preferably with a bit of manure or garden compost added from time to time. It is useful as  a quick screen or as a specimen, where it will quickly grow in both height and volume. As with most bamboos, some shelter from strong drying winds in spring is helpful, as is ensuring it is well watered after planting and while establishing. Although vigorous, it is clump forming and not overly-invasive. In Ireland it tends to grow to around 3 metres. Plants sold in a 2L container,140-150cm tall with multiple canes and new growth. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.
