Yellow Groove Bamboo or Phyllostachys Aureosulcata is a bamboo native to China - it is extremely hardy, evergreen plant that is particularly useful for screening and hedging purposes.
This densely bushy bamboo plant has lemon yellow canes which become more of an orange colour when exposed to sunlight.
Phyllostachys Aureosulcata prefers full sun but can be grown in partial shade and for this reason it's a useful plant for screening off shaded areas or for interest in the darker recesses of the garden.

Bamboo Root Barrier
Phyllostachys varieties of bamboo are clump forming and therefore usually non-invasive as the new shoots pop up within their own clump. However after years the clump will expand and will start to spread. If you want to control, direct and enhance the growth you can bury a root barrier (a thick membrane) around 70cm depth into the ground surrounding the bamboo planted area. Membrane available in 5m, 10m and 20m lengths all at 70cm depths.
