Yellow gold cranes striped randomly with green with glossy green leaves. Grows up to 6-7 m but is a tidy upright grower. Excellent as an isolated clump or pot grown.
Phyllostachys aureo-sulcata ‘Spectabilis’
It is difficult to imagine a better all round performer in the ‘large bamboo’ category, are extremely hardy, extremely wind-tolerant, vigorous but not rampant. When first emerging in spring, the new shoots are covered by attractive pink and green striped sheaths. Has culms of bright yellow, flushed red in summer, and have a pronounced green stripe along the groove or sulcus. If that wasn’t enough, the bottom portion of the culm zig-zags attractively. Add an upright growth habit and piles of luxuriant green foliage and it is an all round winner!
