Tall, hardy, and very impressive as a specimen plant or screen.
Similar to Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis' but possibly more upright and slightly less tall with un-striped, dark green canes. Large diameter for the UK.
Upright canes reaching about 20ft.(6m) but can be much more.
The lower parts of the canes are welldisplayed, with few branches and this effect can be further enhanced by pruning any branches occurring below head height.
Attractive glossy foliage.
Has tolerated -23C.
Slow to propagate so availability is sometimes limited.
