A breathtaking bamboo, 'Aureocaulis' has bright golden-yellow culms with variable stripes of bright green! Unlike the smaller bamboos, this large one will thrive in full sun. If you're lucky, it could grow to 40 or 50 feet, possibly taller in warmer, more humid parts of the U.S. At home in China, 70 feet tall is normal and culms can reach a 5" diameter. In the absence of a tree, this is a "grass" you can hug. A runner, plant where it can do just that, or limit it with bamboo barrier, a trench, or plant it on a mound.

Minimum temperature: -10° F
