Golden Bamboo hedge (Phyllostachys aureocaulis) description

Golden Bamboo is perfect for moist to well-drained soils in a sheltered site. In good sunlight, the canes will transition into a lovely orange/pink. As Phyllostachys aureocaulis is fast-growing, it is best situated in a spacious area, allowing room to spread. Alternatively, plant with a root barrier or be quick off the mark to cut out new canes as they appear. Golden Bamboo creates a unique focal point in any garden with its fluid, arching canes.

Care advice for Phyllostachys aureocaulis

As Phyllostachys aureocaulis is a fast grower, it needs pruning regularly to prevent from spreading farther than desired. In the spring, unwanted or spindly canes should be cut down to ground level. The new shoots of Phyllostachys aurea golden bamboo should also be pruned once they grow taller than the rest of the hedge.
