Spring is Bamboo Shooting Season!
Phyllostachys Aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'
One of the first bamboo to shoot in the spring, 'Spectabilis' always puts on a show!
The red blush is from exposure to the sun, and will fade during the season. The culms (canes) will develop a rich yellow color with dark green stripes on the sulcus.
If I could only grow one bamboo this would be the one!
