 Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'

Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis' is the less common, yellow-culm cultivar of P.vivax, and you won't likely find it in any but a specialty bamboo nursery.  This is one of the largest temperate bamboos, capable of reaching a maximum height of 70’, and a culm diameter of 5”.  The large, yellow or randomly green-striped culms and lush green foliage make this a spectacular ornamental for a larger area. To spread and increase in culm size quickly, it needs full sun exposure, and should be grown in moist, organic, slightly acid soil. It is one of the cold hardiest of the large bamboos, remaining evergreen at temperatures to -5 degrees F.  The shoots of this bamboo are very sweet, and considered to be very high quality
