Gold Painted large bamboo with striking green and gold striped culms. It covers a wide footprint, up to 5mtrs and looks best left natural to grow to its impressive size. It tends to have minimal lower foliage and an open clumping habit. It is suitable for large blocks or acreage, and is great for dam stability or to prevent soil erosion. It tends to look a bit grubby on the culms, but from a distance the gold stands out. This is not a 'feature' ornamental golden bamboo, but fantastic for acreage useabilty.
Gold Painted is very quick growing and extremely low maintenance once established. It is also very drought tolerant, so perfect for acreage.

The approximate size of bamboo is only a guide. Plant measurements are taken from the bottom of the pot.
The sizing of plants does vary, particularly through different seasons of the year.
The most valuable part of the bamboo is the rootball size within the pots, which produces incredibly fast growth once planted.
