    Tall bamboo with green-grooved, golden-yellow canes, which can flash with shades of red in the sun, fading to darker yellow with age. This colourful variety looks great alongside the ebony-black canes of the black bamboo, Phyllostachys nigra. This aptly named coloured-stemmed bamboo is one of our 'highly recommended plants'.

  • Garden care: In smaller gardens surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier (such as our bamboo control system) that will restrict the plant's spread.
