Product Information

Yellow Groove Bamboo Phyllostachys aureosulcata aureocaulis has long, slender yellow stems, which form strange zigzag patterns as they grow, providing a really interesting twist and instant impact! Not only that, the stems have beautifully contrasting red highlights when grown in the sun.

They will form attractive clumps, and due to their height are ideal for screening or dividing areas of your garden. Keep plants in check by growing them in pots; they will add great impact in large patio containers. Very hardy, they need little care, so they are perfect for busy gardeners. Just make sure your plants are well watered in summer and don't let them dry out if you are growing yours in a pot.

Supplied as an established plant in 5L pot, approx. 125 -150cm tall.Please note bamboo may arrive taller.

Top Tips

Best planted in spring so that the food reserves in the rhizome are used to produce a good flush of fresh canes in summer

Care Information

  • Before planting, dig over the ground and add well-rotted manure or garden compost.
  • Dig a planting hole so that the rootball sits slightly lower, with 2-3cm (1in) of soil covering the original surface
  • Backfill the hole, taking care not to damage the young rhizomes, then water and mulch.
  • Water regularly and ensure that bamboo plants in containers do not dry out even in winter as the foliage is prone to wind scorch.
  • Give a high nitrogen feed in spring and apply a balanced fertiliser through the rest of the growing season until late August.
  • New bamboo plants can be contained within a physical barrier to prevent them spreading through beds and borders.
  • Divide the bamboo every couple of years.
  • In spring, remove any weak, dead, damaged or spindly canes, cutting them to ground level with secateurs or loppers, at the same time remove any debris at the base of clumps.
  • Smaller bamboos are ideal grown in a container at least 45cm (18in) across.
  • In very cold weather, insulate containers with bubble wrap or move them to frost-free conditions.
