Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'

Golden Vivax

Max/Avg Height (ft.): 70, 40-50

Diameter: 3-5 inches

Hardiness: -5° F

USDA Zones: 6-10

This is possibly our most spectacular new bamboo. This majestic bamboo, with its towering spires of golden yellow culms painted with random green stripes, is truly a sight to behold. Like other large bamboos, Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis' will appreciate the sunniest location possible. Mature height will be 40 to 50 ft. (possibly much taller) with an expected culm diameter of 3" to 5".

In China, its native environment, Golden Vivax reaches an incredible height of 70 feet.  It may be possible to achieve this in southeastern USA where the climate is similar.
