China Gold Bamboo – Bambusa eutuldoides var. viridi-vittata
A non invasive or ‘clumping’ bamboo, China Gold bamboo lives up to its name with bright golden canes with some green striping.
An excellent ornamental bamboo, reaching around 6m in height. Over time it will form a good 2m + clump.
Use as screening plant and you will find that it maintains foliage all the way down the stems.
This is a fairly open growing species, the canes are not usually close together, so it can give a wonderful look in clump.
As an ornamental, prune away the lower growth to reveal wonderful golden canes, excellent as a feature in a Japanese style garden
