Bambusa multiplex cv. Goldstripe

Goldstripe bamboo supplied by Bamboo Creations Nursery
Goldstripe bamboo in 2010 and 2012
This week we are highlighting the wonderful Goldstripe bamboo or botanical name - Bambusa multiplex cv. Goldstripe.  This gets its name from the fact that there are golden stripes on the lower part of the green culm.

This is a nice tight clumping type of bamboo with a maximum height of approximately 3 metres. Goldstripe bamboo has a very dense leafing from top to bottom. This will block out a single story neighboring house in no time with a fabulous green screen.  As this is a tight clumping bamboo it is perfect for smaller areas like apartment courtyards or even pots. 

Being a clumping and screening type of bamboo it can be pruned to any shape to make your garden more interesting or to keep it neat along your fence-line.

Like most bamboo, Goldstripe bamboo is drought tolerant once established. We can give you information on how to establish this bamboo in your garden for the best results.  Visit us at our nursery or come and say hello at one of the many markets we attend (our website has information on these markets).
