Asian Lemon - Bambusa eutuldoides viridi-vittata
If you are seeking a stunning specimen plant that has an upright form and eye-catching coloration, Asian Lemon is an excellent pick. The bright yellow canes are accented by bold green stripes. It's relatively short height enables it to be planted under electric lines yet still be tall enough to block a two-story house. The contrast of Asian Lemon's dark green leaves with the plant's colorful canes makes this a valuable and highly desirable addition to the landscape.
These 30-gal plants are approximately 16' tall with multiple canes including new shoots from the 2010 growing season that have yet to reach their full height.
Close-up views of the canes show how full the pots are with culms ranging from 1/2" to over an inch in diameter.
