Schizostachyum brachycladum 'Ratchaphruek' *New

The name 'Ratchaphruek' alludes to the botanic garden, Royal Flora Ratchaphruek, Chiang Mai, where this variety grows. Called phai khiao amon in Thailand, which translates to 'bamboo green immortal God'.
This is a stunning, ornamental bamboo with bright yellow-striped green stems - best as a solitary specimen. Grows well in full sun on moist soil, or in partial shade. It is extremely rare, even in Thailand. We imported it from Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2012 and a single plant was released to us from USDA quarantine in 2014.
We now have very limited stock of 3 gallon plants.
Very tropical - will not survive temperatures below freezing. Min USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.
