Of all the Bamboos - Phyllostachys Aurea or Golden Bamboo performs as one of the best large, clump forming variety of bushy Bamboo for our climate here in the UK, where it is fully hardy.
Golden Bamboo produces luscious green canes which as its name suggests become more golden yellow as the plant gets more mature. Phyllostachys Aurea is also sometimes commonly referred to as Fishpole Bamboo and will only achieve it's full height and spread in the more sheltered settings.
Bamboo is extremely popular in British gardens and is often used as an evergreen screening plant - they work well when planted as a bamboo hedge - offering a tropical feel to the garden design whilst successfully screening off any undesirable areas.
Paramount has a wonderful selection of Bamboos to buy and large very bushy, mature Bamboo Plants up to 6-7 metres in height - also available from our online shop.
