    A tall, coloured-stemmed bamboo with rich yellow canes with a few green stripes at the base. This green leaved bamboo looks spectacular grown as a specimen. One of our 'highly recommended plants', it should be planted next to a building or path where the near-luminous, yellow to burnt orange coloured canes can be enjoyed all year.

  • Garden care: In smaller gardens surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that restricts the plant's spread.
