Golden Bamboo hedge plants, or Phyllostachys aureocaulis to use the Latin name, are an exotic evergreen species that creates a useful screen of lemony yellow stems that complement the classic, green foliage.
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 or 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.
Golden Bamboo requires watering until it is established. Once the plants have settled in after the first year and the tall, yellow canes have arrived, Phyllostachys aureocaulis makes a wonderfully attractive, evergreen screen.
We recommend growing this exotic evergreen alone to create a dense, effective and attractive screen.
Phyllostachys aureocaulis hedging is very fast growing and can achieve more than 60cm pa. Golden Bamboo will reach heights of 2.5-4m
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.
