Castillon Bamboo

Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillon'

Height: 55′
Diameter: 3″+
Cold Resistance: 5 F
Light:Sun to moderate shade

With bright green stripes on alternating sides of bright yellow gold canes this bamboo makes a dramatic specimen planting.  The American Bamboo Society list this as having a max. diameter of 2 inches but my grove has several canes exceeding 3 inches.  Castillon is a variety of Japanese Timber bamboo and has the same strong canes that are ideal for construction and crafts.
