Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillon' (Striped Running Timber Bamboo) - This beautiful running bamboo grows 35 feet tall w/ 2 inch wide golden culms that are vertically green banded, alternately in the sulcus, the groove above the branch bud. Like other Phyllostachys bambusoides the culms are often well spaced. Reportedly grows in a range of soils. Useful as a single specimen plant, in a grove, or as a hedge. Plant in full sun. Hardy to 5 F. This cultivar was nearly lost when it flowered in the 1990's but has recovered.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery and our own landscape plantings and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillon'
