We simply adore this stunning clumping bamboo that makes an 18' tall deer-resistant clump (35' in more tropical areas) of 1" diameter canes, vertically striped gold and green. We have observed slight foliage burn at 10 degrees F and some cane dieback at 8 degrees F. While we have had clumps die to the ground at 0 degrees F, they have always resprouted nicely when summer warmth arrived, although it takes a few years to recover their full size.

Info

This striking variegated bamboo makes an excellent screen in partly shaded locations. With regular water a healthy plant can reach 30' tall in a 6' wide stand. Noted for its yellow-orange striped canes and pinkish new growth, 'Alphonse Karr' seems to be slightly more cold tolerant than other Bambusas. Best in moist, rich soils. Hardy to 25F. Southern China.

Info

Multiplex is the hardiest of the Bambusa. Each node bears a large number of branches making a dense hedge. The culms and branches are bright yellow with narrow dark green stripes. New shoots are often reddish in color. The erect culms are leaf-free for the bottom half and form dense clumps of branches covered with leaves toward the top. The back of the leaves have a "silvery" look.

Info

Surely the finest subtropical bamboo (native to northern India); astonishing yellow canes with random green stripes. New canes blushed red in full sun. Makes a superb interior plant in full light. Although cold hardy to 15°F or below, it will be damaged around 20F. Reaches 10 to 20 ft. Clumper. Great container plant.
