Phyllostachys aurea

Phyllostachys aurea 'Koi'


This variety has pale yellow stems with a green stripe, enhanced by
light shade, but is otherwise similar to  Phyllostachys aurea 'Holochrysa'.

Young culms are initially blue-green, becoming yellow in the second year.

The congested nodes characteristic of this species develop at the base of older culms.

Has tolerated - 20C. 

Usually forms a tidy, upright clump of around 13ft. (4.5m).

Foliage tends to be rather pale.

Older plants may benefit from thinning.

An excellent, well behaved specimen plant or screen.

Develops more slowly than Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' but this may be an advantage where space is resticted.

 Slow to propagate so availability may be limited.
