Beautiful tight clumping bamboo. Very upright. 2 cultivars are commonly available, flavidorivens (yellow with green striped culms) and virdiflavus (reversed colors, otherwise same plant). Should be hardy to 25* F, does very well in SW Fl. Gets 30 ft tall, culms to 3" diameter.
Flavidorivens is not bright yellow like Vittata but just as beautiful. A good 'specimen' or ornamental bamboo.
