Phyllostachys are attractive, tall, evergreen bamboos that make an architectural statement in the garden.

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 an interesting specimen plant. 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.
