(Award of Garden Merit) Family Poaceae
Originating from China
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.
Excellent as an upright, non-invasive specimen with bold, billowing upper foliage.
