Where a bamboo won’t do, these clumping 6-7’ tall stems are smaller and slower growing the species, making this a fine vertical statement in the garden! Leaves are outlined in a soft buttery gold and don’t bleach or fade as summer progresses. Sun to part shade, average garden soil, summer moisture. Easy and commanding! Deer proof.

'Golden Chain' is a gold variegated form of the giant reed that is brighter in colour and smaller in habitat than the form 'Variegata'. It provides a gorgeous mid or back of the border exclamation point which would look fantastic combined with rich greens and burgundy foliage. Showy copper flowering panicles occur in warm climates but are unlikely in coastal BC. Plant in full to part sun in average to moist soils. Deer resistant.

This is a nice sport of Arundo donax 'Versicolor' from the UK and differs in the medium green leaves prominently edged in yellow couple with a smaller size topping out at 7 feet. This gives you a rather manageable yet striking bamboo look with tawny silver plumes in late summer.

Info

This beautiful new UK selection of the giant reed grass adds a new twist to a great deer-resistant garden plant. Arundo 'Golden Chain' was named in the mid-1990s by Liam Mackenzie of the UK's Madrona Nursery as a tissue culture mutation from Arundo donax 'Versicolor'. Arundo 'Golden Chain' forms a clump of 7' tall upright stalks of medium green leaves edged in gold. The color holds all season, unlike the larger and more common Arundo donax 'Versicolor'. Arundo 'Golden Chain' is also a much smaller and less vigorous plant which makes propagation more of a chore, but keeps it in scale with smaller gardens.
