Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis'

Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis'

An excellent very hardy bamboo for general garden use in sun, providing a colourful and manageable specimen. Very upright culms with occasional, characteristic zigzag bases emerge pale yellow and turn to a rich golden yellow, temporarily reddening on the sunny side, and reach about 4m in height. Potentially running, so use rhizome barrier. To about 4.5m tall.

Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'

Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'

Widely available and deservedly so, this is a very colourful and very hardy plant with a mass of strongly upright, golden-yellow culms that have an alternating green groove, and occasionally have a zigzag base. The culms temporarily blush red on the sunny side, and the foliage is rich green. Potentially running, so use rhizome barrier. To about 4.5m tall. Best in sun.

Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillonii'

Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillonii'

A beautiful bamboo with thick culms in bright yellow with alternating deep green patches making a striking contrast, up to 4.5m high. One of the most colourful bamboos, and truly spectacular when well grown in full sun. Colours much stronger on older plants. Perfectly hardy. Usually loosely clump forming, but potentially running in very warm gardens.

Phyllostachys dulcis

For those wanting to create a real grove of big, thick culms quickly, this is your plant. Still a rarity, this species has the ability to throw up very beefy green culms with white bands at each node from an early age, creating a thicket of tall, leafy shoots up to 6m. The young shoots are delicious (dulcis meaning sweet), so a good choice for the vegetable garden. Best in full sun.

Phyllostachys nigra

Phyllostachys nigra

'Black Bamboo'. Hardly needs an introduction; the unique and well known favourite, making a gracefully arching upright clump to about 3m high. Culms often green in their first year, becoming jet black. Not overly vigorous for a Phyllostachys with limited spread at the root; easy to control. Loves sun, heat and rain. Perfectly hardy.

Phyllostachys nigra var. henonis

Phyllostachys nigra var. henonis

The big green brother of 'Black Bamboo'. A strong growing, very tall bamboo with big, thick green culms and masses of small leaves, densely set, giving a particularly attractive appearance. Tighter in cool northern areas, but could form an impressive grove in hot places in the south. Up to 6m high and very hardy. Best in full sun. One of my favourites.

Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'

Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'

Me oh my, I love this bamboo. Truly marvellous, and jaw droppingly impressive when one encounters a mature specimen, which doesn't take long from a small plant, as the huge thick culms seem to arise from nowhere. They are golden yellow with occasional green stripes, and the foliage is rich green, elegantly drooping and held high. Up to 6m. Vigorous.
