Buy Phyllostachys aureosulcata f. spectabilis showy yellow-groove bamboo: Brilliant coloured canes

Bamboos never look their best in winter because the cold, drying winds will often scorch their leaves. In late spring however, new canes will appear bearing a fresh batch of lush foliage.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tall bamboo with green-grooved, golden yellow canes, which can flash with shades of red in the sun, fading to darker yellow with age. This colourful variety looks great alongside the ebony black canes of the black bamboo, Phyllostachys nigra. This aptly named coloured-stemmed bamboo is one of our 'highly recommended plants'.

  • Garden care: In smaller gardens surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier (such as our bamboo control system) that will restrict the plant's spread.

Great plant for winter garden


Chose this after admiring it in the Cambridge University Botanical Garden winter garden

Lovely, healthy-looking plant


I planted this bamboo in a large plastic tub sunk into the flower border and it looks stunning but won't, I hope, completely take over. It grows quickly, is a lovely bright green and provides the height I wanted without being too dense. I love it!

Planted it in a large rubberised container with the bottom cut out in a small circular bed in the middle of a lawn. It was bought for screening and does the job brilliantly while looking really graceful, especially when the wind rustles through its leaves.

First garden novice

Hello, These are around 30 - 40cm in a 2-litre pot.


Hi I have two 30ltr plant pots will this plant grow happily in this size pot.


Hello, They will for a couple of years, provided they are kept really well watered (and fed during the growing season), but after that they will need to be planted into something much larger as they are spreading bamboos rather than clump-formers.


How to control diseases

Prevention is better than cure with diseases in the garden so keep your plants growing as strongly as possible – allowing them to fight off infections naturally. A weak plant is much more likely to fall prey than a good, sturdy one. Also be vigilant! Try
