Phyllostachys aureosulcata spectablis
What you get
You will receive a fully rooted 7.5ltr pot, with the bamboo standing 5-6ft.
Phyllostachys aureosulcata spectablis is a beautiful bamboo with yellow culms and a bright green sulcus. Like all aureosulcata you get the odd zig zag at the base of some culms. The leaves are deep green and often have a random thin white stripe. This is a mid sized bamboo growing 4-9m in height and with a spread of 1-2m over 10 years. Like all Phyllostachys this is a running bamboo, but usually will sit for 10 years nicely clumped before moving.
Planting and care
Best planted in full sun or light shade with the addition of organic matter. After its planted make sure it's kept moist for atleast the first 6 months. When in the ground, once established it will mostly look after itself.
The best food a bamboo can have is its own leaves and culm sheafs, so leave them to mulch the plant. If you're worried about the bamboo running you can use a bamboo barrier or grow it in a pot using a good soil based compost, keeping it well fed and watered.
