  • Canes: glossy golden with green stripe

Golden glossy canes with a green stripe above the branch bud contrasting with dark green leaves. In cold winters young canes will turn a stunning red if exposed to bright sunshine. This tall bamboo's upright habit makes it perfect for screening areas of the garden and growing as a bamboo hedge. Its fabulous multi-coloured canes also make it a striking and unusual feature plant.

  • Garden care: Plant in a large container or surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that restricts the plant's spread.
