A vigorous and attractive bamboo with golden stems and light green leaves. This is probably the most popular of the Phyllostachys bamboos available in Ireland, with light green leaves, resilience to winds and attractive green-golden stems. Tolerant of most soils, it prefers fertile and 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, in a container or as a specimen clump where it will quickly grow in both height and volume. As with most bamboos, some shelter from strong drying winds in spring is important, as is ensuring it is well watered after planting and while establishing. Although vigorous, it is not clum forming and not overly-invasive. In Ireland it tends to grow to around 3 - 4 metres. Large: vigorous plants in a 5L container,150-175 cms tall. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.
