3-Gal + 7-Gal Size 

10% Off

Bambusa multiplex alphonse karr 
Can grow 15-30 feet with 1½" diameter canes. Very Hardy.

Like Green Hedge Bamboo, Golden Hedge also makes a spectacular barrier or centerpiece planting. The canes are yellow with vertical green stripes. Since it is slightly shorter than the green-caned hedge bamboo above, it may be preferable for a smaller yard or for planting under electric wires. With its striking coloring Golden Hedge is a very popular addition to the landscape. Golden Hedge and Green Hedge look very attractive when mixed together to form a living fence.

Golden Hedge Clumping Bamboo (Bambusa multiplex alphonse karr)

If you're looking for a bamboo that combines function, beauty and hardiness, look no further than Golden Hedge Clumping Bamboo.

Like all multiplex bamboos, Golden Hedge has a very dense, broad growth pattern which makes it the perfect choice for an impenetrable living hedge while the yellow canes with vertical green stripes make it a good candidate for a centerpiece planting. 

Bold green stripes against a soft golden background adds to the allure of this practical and attractive Clumping Bamboo specimen

Since Golden Hedge is slightly shorter (maximum height of 30') than the 45'-tall Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo (Bambusa multiplex 'Silverstripe'), it may be preferable for a smaller yard or for planting under electric wires. If space is not a problem, however, Golden Hedge and Green Hedge look very attractive when mixed together to form a living fence.

A mixed hedge of Golden and Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo provides a fast-growing and beautiful privacy screen in a residential yard

Another one of Golden Hedge Clumping Bamboo's assets is its hardiness. It can tolerate temperatures into the mid-teens.  We have seen Golden Hedge Clumping Bamboo growing throughout the Southeast and in the temperate climate of Seattle, WA.

Hardiness is one of Golden Hedge Clumping Bamboo's many assets

Even though the multiplex family of bamboo is one of the hardiest groups of clumping bamboos, it still will not survive any part of the country that regularly gets single-digit or subzero winter temperatures.  If you live in one of those areas and wish to create a living hedge of bamboo, please consider one of our Running Bamboos.  Running Bamboos love cold weather and actually grow taller with larger diameter canes in colder climates than they do in warmer, more tropical parts of the world.


Birds and 'boo

I hung one of my bird feeders from a Blue Timber Bamboo (Bambusa chungii) cane and numerous birds have flocked there to feed.

Below are a few of the many species I've photographed against a beautiful bamboo backdrop.

One of my favorite birds - a chickadee - came for the sunflower seeds

Two cardinals - the red-feathered male in the forefront with the less showy female in the rear

Two goldfinches on the sides with a chipping sparrow in front

Two goldfinches alone.   They must have scared the chipping sparrow away

Springtime in the bamboo grove

It's spring and that means the running bamboos are shooting! New bamboo culms are emerging at an astonishing rate.

Below are three pictures of one particularly beautiful specimen - Phyllostachys vivax huangwenzhu, which we call Green-Gold Vivax Timber Bamboo.

A broad yellow vertical stripe appears on alternating culm section of Green-Gold Vivax Timber Bamboo 

This young shoot is reaching for the sky as it grows upward through a window of bamboo leaves

Looking down at a newly emerged shoot from above.  In just a few days, this relatively small shoot will tower over my head and I'll have to look up to take a picture


Wind through Bamboo

A strong wind today filled the air with music as breezes blew through a mature stand of Giant Timber Clumping Bamboo (Bambusa oldhamii) at the original sight of Beautiful Bamboo nursery.

This short video provides a sound picture of the 'clinking' and 'clacking' sounds made when bamboo canes are rustled by gusts of air.
