Tall, upright bamboo with grooved, brown-yellow mature canes and golden-green leaves. This bamboo is highly recommended as it is one of the least invasive large species. A great specimen plant, it's best grown close to buildings or paths where the interesting distortions on the canes can be appreciated close-up. Contrasts beautifully with Phyllostachys nigra - the black cane bamboo.
