Colourful bark, Dramatic foliage
This decorative bamboo originates from China. Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Lama Temple' is grown for its sulphur-yellow canes. It makes an excellent backdrop for border planting, and is useful for screening. Planted alone, it makes a strong architectural statement. The sound of its leaves rustling in the wind is also very appealing. Although this is one of the less invasive types of bamboo, precautions may be taken to restrict spread, such as planting in a large container or limiting the roots with a non-perishable barrier.

what an elegant plant I don't grow this one as it doesn't seem to like my garden the last one died but it is a beautiful thing.
I have had mine for ten years and would recommend it. However on occasion strong and tall canes fail to develop leaves. It is happening this year and I cannot find out the reason.
