Decorative bamboo with almost translucent golden culms which have a slightly zigzagging pale green stripe down the groove. Culms grow 12-15′ tall with a maximum of 1″ diameter. The dense foliage is green with thin golden stripes. Looks best in full sun, which turns the canes reddish in the fall, but will grow in 1/2-day afternoon sun. Tolerates temperatures down to -5 degrees. Great as medium size screen or container plant.
