Phyllostachys Vivax Aureocaulis is a rare collector species that hasn’t been in the US for very long.  Because of this, sources of this plant can be sketchy and you definitely want to buy from a reputable grower.  Aureocaulis is sought after because of its decorative and ornamental properties.  The canes are a yellow/golden color with green stripes occasionally present. The leaves are a vibrant green that sometimes have a white striping on them.  This truly is a magnificent bamboo species, but the availability of such species is VERY limited and they do go QUICKLY.
