One of the most interesting color variations, the culms are green at first becoming yellow with a green sulcus after a few months. Similar in color to Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillonis', but with the compressed nodes at the base typical of the species. This is a real gem. The yellow parts of the culm are sometimes tinted with a rose highlight in bright sun.
