Description: Gold Stripe is native to China. It is a lovely tight upright bamboo with gold striped culms. Perfect for small gardens or tight spaces like the side of houses, driveways and pergolas. Very quick growing. Most cold hardy bamboo that looks great all year round. Great for pots or planters and can be thinned out to expose the canes at the base. Due to its fast grown nature, it is perfect for hedges. This forms a medium-sized clump with slender culms and dense foliage, making a great sound or windbreak. Gold Stripe is one of our top 5 bamboos.
