Golden Bamboo, botanical name Phyllostachys aurea, is a fast-growing bamboo melding style and functionality to beautify any landscape. Native to southeast China, this bamboo is an excellent choice for tropical and Asian-themed landscape. It's a small to medium bamboo tree that features beautiful golden stems and thick growth, making it an attractive option for homeowners in search of a privacy hedge. In fact, it's one of the best choices for creating a lush living wall because of its fast growth and tropical features. The golden shoots contrast beautifully with the dark green evergreen foliage.

Golden Bamboo is cold hardy, heat tolerant, and adapts well to sun and partial shade environments. One of the great things about this bamboo tree is that you don't have to live in the tropics for it to thrive. Homeowners across the Western United States and the Southwest can bring the warmth and tranquil features of a Golden Bamboo tree into their backyard retreat. It's a great container plant and looks fantastic near water fountains, sculptures or in a Japanese garden. If you wish to keep it in a container, feel free to visit your local Moon Valley Nurseries location and check out our beautiful pottery for sale!

Golden Bamboo has many uses. It brings a peaceful tranquility to most any landscape, can be used as a living privacy wall and windbreak, and adds curb appeal and value to a property. Plus, the canes can be used to make fishing poles!

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.

My privacy hedge is great for blocking out my neighbors! It makes my family feel better as well knowing we don't have anyone peeping into our backyard. I would highly recommend buying some privacy hedges from Moon Valley Nurseries!
