China Gold Bamboo

Botanical Name: Bambusa eutuldoides var. viridi-vittata

Description: As the name suggests, China Gold is a bamboo plant with elegant golden-yellow canes with contrasting green stripes. Native to Southern China, this looks fantastic in any Chinese or Japanese inspired garden. This plant has foliage down the stem, but with a bit of imagination, you can cut away the lower foliage to reveal the feature of this plant (the colour of the canes). China Gold is a fabulous ornamental type of bamboo that can look like a giant umbrella. The clumping nature of this plant means that it will not overrun your garden and can be used as a screen or block out unwanted views.
