Phyllostachys Aureocaulis AKA Bamboo

We separated a number  of clumps from an established  Phyllostachys Aureocaulis  AKA Bamboo or  golden bamboo as it is also known  several months ago.  We are based in Mansfield and this particular bamboo has weathered our storms.

We at Drive-Cote Ltd not only work with resin driveways.  We incorporate garden designs and ideas with our surfacing options.  Resin and all its complexities is  an attractive product and we try and bring driveways, paths and patios into the garden.

There is always the uncertainity  as to whether  they would survive transplanting.  This is  bearing in mind the extremes of weather we seem to be experiencing  over the winter time – wind – snow –rain and even a heatwave.

However a couple of months ago 6 spikes appeared out of the soil and it is looking as though the plant is going to be able to establish itself over the coming years.

The donor plant has canes nearly 2 inches wide and 20ft tall.   Phyllostachys Aureocaulis AKA BambooPhyllostachys Aureocaulis  AKA Bamboo

It really is an excellent specimen.    If the donor plant is anything to go by the off cuts will hopefully replicate a strong healthy and flourishing plant.

This particular  bamboo is in a very evident position as far as pedestrians are concerned and already we have had a number of people knock on the door asking where they can  locate the same bamboo species.  Remember the name Phyllostachys Aureocaulis AKA Bamboo

So remember if you want a hardy bamboo that will grow very large canes 2.4 to 4 m high at a quite a speedy growth rate of 60cm per yer.  This is the bamboo to go for

This decorative bamboo Phyllostachys Aureocaulis AKA Bamboo originates from China. It is grown for its sulphur-yellow canes, which feature occasional green stripes at their bases. It makes an excellent backdrop for border planting, and is useful for screening.  Planted alone, it makes a strong architectural statement.  The sound of its leaves rustling in the wind is also very appealing.  Although this is one of the less invasive types of bamboo, precautions may be taken to restrict spread, such as planting in a large container or limiting the roots with a non-perishable barrier.

It does require sun or partial shade and needs moist soil and feed regularly.
