This rare collector bamboo is not generally available for sale. Phyllostachys Aureosulcata has yellow culms (or canes/stocks) that have a green strip and green leaves providing gorgeous contrast. It’s a cold hardy bamboo that has survived in temperatures as low as -15 and handles wind moderately well.  In warmer zones (such as 6,7,and 8) Spectabilis grows quickly forming dense, yet incredibly beautiful screens with low lying branches.  This is a rare bamboo and it sells out quickly.
