Phyllostachys Aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'

Average mature size 1.5" x 26' Hardy to -5 F Aggressive in full sun

A beautiful collector species not commonly available. This species adds a splash of color with a beautiful yellow and green bamboo fence. Very cold hardy with growing habits similar to 'Yellow Groove'. Bright yellow coloration of the canes with the green stripe in the sulcus grooves is absolutely beautiful. This species handles windy sites much better than 'Yellow Groove and is at the top of the list on cold hardiness.

I recommend this species for climate zone 5 and warmer.
