Phyllostachys aureosulcata f. aureocaulis (Yellow Grove Bamboo)

Yellow Grove Bamboo, Phyllostachys aureocaulis, Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis', Running Bamboo


Extremely cold-hardy, Phyllostachys aureosulcata f. aureocaulis (Yellow Grove Bamboo) is an evergreen bamboo with tall, upright, yellow canes, which may occasionally display a thin green stripe or panel. Rich bright yellow at first, the culms, 2 in. wide (5 cm), ripen to deep golden yellow. Strong sunlight will turn the young culms red temporarily, a lovely effect that disappears after the first season. This bamboo is also known for its zigzag pattern on the lower culms. The long, glossy green leaves, up to 7 in. (18 cm), display sometimes a thin creamy-yellow stripe. Vigorous, this running bamboo enjoys a fairly upright habit, unless grown in shade, where it becomes very lax. Perfect for cold or exposed gardens, it makes an excellent hedge or screen and can be grown in containers. Hardy to -4ºF (-20ºC).

  • Grows up to 15-25 ft. tall (4-8 m) and 8-15 ft. wide (2-5 m).
  • A full sun or partial shade lover, it is best grown in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soils. Best planted in an open position. Should remain as a large thicket but may become invasive in warm, moist or optimum conditions.
  • Great choice as an accent plant, for hedges and screens and containers.
  • Virtually pest and disease free. Deer are generally not problematic.
  • Remove weak, dead, damaged or spindly stems in spring and thin to show off stems to best effect. Cut out any flowering shoots promptly to discourage more from forming.
  • Propagate by division in spring.
  • Native to China
