Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis' plants are 2 years old now in one gallon containers and are very fast growing.
A relatively new bamboo, the awesome "Gold Vivax" is one of the most impressive, almost imposingly beautiful, giant hardy bamboos. It embodies the classic bamboo characteristics; immense size and vitality balanced by a graceful personality. It can potentiallygrow to an outstanding 65+ feet in height if given favorable conditions. Full sun, rich topsoil, lots of water during the hot summer months, and wide open space will consistently produce bright yellow culms over 40 feet tall,supporting plumes of dark, glossy-green foliage. In regions with harsh wintersto 5 F or less, 25 to 30 feet is probably its maximum size.
In the late 1990's P. vivax 'Aureocaulis' was imported from from Europe (via Japan)and sold in a rare plant auction by the American Bamboo Society for a small fortune. Since then it has been grown successfully and propagated by a few bamboo nurseries. Just now it is becoming available on a wider scale. In feng shui Golden Bamboo represents prosperity!
