Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Lama Temple' is a decorative bamboo, native to China, 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.

For best results grow Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Lama Temple' in moist but well-drained soil. Although it's 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.
