Phyllostachys vivax ‘Aureocaulis’

Golden Chinese Timber Bamboo


Eventual Plant Size


Phyllostachys vivax ‘Aureocaulis’ is simply the biggest and best golden bamboo! It will reach a similar size to the species but has amazing gold canes with intermittent green striping. Perhaps the best specimen bamboo you can grow – just make sure you feed and water it well for the best results.

If you have room for a big bamboo, either planted or in a large container, then this is the one! RHS Award of Garden Merit. We recommend using bamboo root barrier for this bamboo.
