Phyllostachys vivax
'Huangwenzhu Inversa'
(Kimmei vivax)

Similar to 'vivax Huangwehzhu' but the colours are inversed. The culms are a brillant yellow with a green sulcus. Looks similar to Bambusoides Castillon, however 'Kimmei vivax' is a much more aggressive grower with thicker culms. Another very beautiful timber bamboo.

"Kimmei" is a Japanese word which loosely translated means "golden with a green sign". Kimmei is the perfect reflection for the golden culms with green striping.
