Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'
(Golden vivax)

Of the striped bamboos, this is one of the most impressive and striking. The culms are a radiant yellow with random and varying green stripes. On some culms, the striping is absent. Like the species, 'Aureocaulis' is quick to acheive great heights and needs plenty of space. A great focal point for any garden.

In some groves, vivax Aureocaulis shoots will sport to other vivax cultivars and vice versa!! Another unexplainable wonder of bamboo.
