Phyllostachys Aurea 'Koi'
Average mature size 1.75" X 27 feet in height
Hardy to 5 F - Aggressive in full sun
Great Screening Bamboo
A rare bamboo that is a great complimentary bamboo to the Golden Bamboo. This bamboo can give your screen a splash of color. The culms are yellow with a green stripe in the sulcus groove. Meaning that it has a patterned striping that alternated sides up and down the cane. It also has an occasional leaf variegation. It is a great choice for screen because it has low growing limbs. The culm nodes are compacted giving this species a great look on larger canes.
I recommend this species for USDA Climate Zones 6 and warmer.
Climate Zone 7 expect mature size canes to be over 25 feet in height.
Climate Zone 6 expect mature size canes to be over 15 feet in height.
3 gallon sizes are $50
