Phyllostachys aureosulcata ‘Aureocaulis’, the Golden crookstem bamboo (so called due to its occasional kinked new growth) is a wonderfully dainty bamboo with bright gold canes and airy foliage. The emerging canes are blushed pink in strong sunlight, making this a very attractive specimen.
It reaches around 4 to 5 metres in height so is ideal for hedging or screening. It does well in a container and looks stunning on a patio as a main feature plant.
We recommend using bamboo root barrier for this bamboo. RHS Award of Garden Merit.
