Additional Information About Golden Fish Pole Bamboo


Golden Fish Pole Bamboo, Phyllostachys Aurea 'Flavenscens-inversa', is a handsome, highly-ornamental, colorful golden bamboo with green culms (canes) that are striped in yellow. As a very aggressive spreader in areas with warm summers, it will provide a quick screen, however on smaller properties will require containment using an in-ground barrier. It is used worldwide as an ornamental and is excellent for use as a screen. Culms are used for interior decoration, fishing rods, walking sticks, umbrella handles, and many other crafts projects.

Golden Fish Pole bamboo is a running bamboo, which means it spreads. Bamboo can be easily controlled in a small area (a normal city yard) simply by mowing or stepping on the young shoots. Keep in mind that running bamboo only puts up new shoots for a short time each year, and when they are "shooting", the new plants are very fragile and easy to destroy. Root pruning, a Bamboo Root Barrier or growing plants in above- or below-ground containers are other methods to control spread.

Gardener Direct also carries Bamboo fertilizer and planting soil containing Biochar, a highly porous material that allows for long term water and nutrient holding capabilities.
