Family Poaceae
Originating from China

A very handsome, well-known but variable species, usually clump-forming in the UK, with tightly packed canes, however in warmer countries it can be a rampaging thug.
It is commonly called 'Golden Bamboo' but oddly there is nothing golden about it. It has lustrous green canes with very pronounced swellings below the nodes and a profusion of lush green leaves. The only time it is yellow is if it is starved of nutrients. Needs good light and is not suitable for growing in shade.
Uses
Excellent as an upright, non-invasive specimen with bold, billowing upper foliage.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 5m

Spread 2.5m
