Gardeners' Notes:

This is a very beautiful bamboo. I was curious how it would do this past winter. We had over 30 days where it got below freezing with a low temperature of 15F. My tallest culm before the winter was about 10 feet tall. Unfortunately, the freeze damaged the culms down to about 6 inches above the ground. It looks like everything above that level probably froze. That said, there is a very vigorous brand new culm shooting up. It's already about 2 feet tall.

Beautiful yellow canes w/pronounced green stripe on alternate internodes. Truly one of the best looking bamboos. (newer introduction). Good for a privacy hedge as it tends to retain many lower branches. A nice medium sized fast cane producer with a slightly diffuse habit. New shoots appear reddish. Canes smooth to the touch. Contrasting colors on canes are well defined. Some leaves are veriegated with white stripes. Just panyed my first one in the fall of 2007 in central Florida
