Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'

Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'

Widely available and deservedly so, this is a very colourful and very hardy plant with a mass of strongly upright, golden-yellow culms that have an alternating green groove, and occasionally have a zigzag base. The culms temporarily blush red on the sunny side, and the foliage is rich green. Potentially running, so use rhizome barrier. To about 4.5m tall. Best in sun.

Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Marliacea' (new)

A very rare form of this strong growing hardy species, distinct in the textural corrugated culms, with longitudinal grooves, this has for long been a most desirable acquisition for bamboo aficionados. Best in the southern half of the UK at least, as this species grows better with warmer summers, the thick upright culms potentially rise to about 6m.

Phyllostachys nigra

Phyllostachys nigra

'Black Bamboo'. Hardly needs an introduction; the unique and well known favourite, making a gracefully arching upright clump to about 3m high. Culms often green in their first year, becoming jet black. Not overly vigorous for a Phyllostachys with limited spread at the root; easy to control. Loves sun, heat and rain. Perfectly hardy.

Phyllostachys nigra 'Boryana'

Phyllostachys nigra 'Boryana'

Much bigger than the normal 'Black Bamboo', this form develops into a huge upright specimen to about 6m, with thick green culms splashed with large dark brown blotches in their second year. Sounds strange but is in fact very attractive. Hardy and vigorous, making quite a clump in time. An excellent specimen plant. Best in full sun.

Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'

Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'

Me oh my, I love this bamboo. Truly marvellous, and jaw droppingly impressive when one encounters a mature specimen, which doesn't take long from a small plant, as the huge thick culms seem to arise from nowhere. They are golden yellow with occasional green stripes, and the foliage is rich green, elegantly drooping and held high. Up to 6m. Vigorous.
