Spectabilis Bamboo This aptly named form of "Yellow Groove Bamboo" is both rare and beautiful. Its colors are reversed from the species, i.e., it has bright yellow culms with a green sulcus. It is the hardiest bamboo with yellow and green striped color pattern. Like the other forms of the species, this bamboo makes an excellent hedge or screen due to its fast, upright growth. When grown in a sunny location, the new culms have a spectacular red highlight in the spring and early summer. Typical diameter is about 2" wide.
