A beautiful Tropical bamboo that is only good down to 28 degrees Fahrenheit. It is one of the widest
spread ornamental bamboos in the world. It can reach heights between 40 and 50 feet in ideal
conditions. Ours are topped and kept in the greenhouse during the winter months. Not recommended
for in-ground plantings except in the warmest and best protected regions in Texas. The bamboo has
many names including "Hawaiian Gold", "Golden Bamboo" and "Painted Bamboo."
