Golden Bamboo Plants. Bamboo Phyllostachys Vivax Aureocaulis 15 Litre: Phyllostachys Vivax is a very hardy giant bamboo with thick canes, reaching heights in the UK climates in excess of 9 metres. Unusually for a Phyllostachys Bamboo, leaves are very large and deep green. In warmer areas it can be an aggressive grower, so a root barrier may be an option, this also applies to colder areas.  New larger canes appear in spring through to early summer and quickly replace any winter damage, No other bamboo grows quite as fast as Phyllostachys Vivax, especially because the cane diameter is very thick and relative to the height which makes the plant look even bigger from a young age. Culms are mainly golden with a random green stripe, but can occasionally for no specific reason appear totally green. Also known to be tolerant of salt so a good choice for coastal plantng. 

What to expect: Your plant will arrive with an approximate height of 2 metres, planted in 15 litre pots and will be just like the picture or bigger. 

. Are they evergreen Bamboo are an evergreen, perennial and a member of the grass family. Fast growing, they take up very little lateral space and yet they can reach fabulous heights extremely quickly, making bamboo a very cost effective choice when you need screening fast! They will naturally shed some leaf during the winter months. .How much water do they need Like any other plant, bamboo needs three basic things in order to survive. Soil, sun and water. And as a gardener, one of your greatest responsibilities is to provide your bamboo with water. They are an incredibly thirsty plant and will require watering on a daily basis especially during hot periods. .Will it need a root barrier Fargesia are a non invasive clumping bamboo and will not require a root barrier. Phyllostachys, Aureosulcata and Pseudosasa are all ‘runners’ which can be either planted in a larger pot or with a root barrier in the ground. .How quickly will it grow This really is dependent on watering sunshine and care. You would hope to achieve at least another third in growth during the growing season. .How far apart should I plant them Space mature plants 1 metre apart to form a dense screen. Fast Growing varieties can be planted a little further apart if you don't mind waiting longer for them to fill in the gaps.
