Schizostachyum brachycladum Yellow Form - Sacred Bali Bamboo
Bright Yellow with occasional vertical green stripes on culms. Large leaves with occasional vaieagation. Striking bamboo. Tight clumping, few low branches.
Has been described as being extremely tropical and unable to survive temperatures even approaching freezing. After many years of observation in South Florida, we have found the species to be no more sensitive than many other of our tropical bamboos when exposed to short-term temps near freezing. It can be, however, unforgiving if planted in less than ideal growing conditions. Specimens can languish for years then, when moved to a better location in the same garden, quickly thrive.
