Phyllostachys aurea – Golden bamboo 2-2.5m tall

Phyllostachys aurea is a graceful, evergreen bamboo with arrow straight, bright green canes that become yellow with age and yellow/golden green lanceolate leaves that are held all year. Golden bamboo is often considered to be clump forming which is less invasive than other running varieties. Although this plant will form slowly spreading dense clumps, it has the potential to send out runners in ideal conditions, this means that we recommend planting bamboo with a root barrier in order to control the spread and direction of root growth. Phyllostachys aurea will reach a mature height of 4-6m and a mature spread of 3m, an excellent choice for an elegant screen, we would recommend planting in moist, well draining soils in full sun or light dappled shade.
