WHERE FUNCTION MEETS BEAUTY

Create your own Asian Landscape

  • Drought tolerant and easy to maintain
  • Make a living wall for privacy
  • Transforms to a bright golden color

Lush, Green and Tropical

The Golden Bamboo adds style and functionality to any landscape. The Asian appeal of the light green is bolstered by saber tooth leaves that give Golden Bamboo its priceless look.

Thick growth and dense leaves make Golden the unrivaled choice for the creation of a privacy barrier that will perform beyond expectations in no time at all.

And you don't have to live in the tropics for Golden Bamboo to thrive. Areas as far north as New York can easily grow Golden Bamboo to bring warmth and tranquility to backyard retreats.

The Dream Screen

The challenge of planting any screen is getting it to grow quickly enough to provide the desired amount of privacy. That challenge is quickly met by the fast, clustered growth of Golden Bamboo's canes, coming together to create a tropical wall that will prevent any curious eyes from peering through. Once the bamboo absorbs the right amount of sun light, its pale green canes will transform to the brilliant golden color for which it's aptly named.

Master the art of designing your own Asian garden by strategically placing the Golden Bamboo among sculptures and other oriental themed plants. You can even plant it to form a perimeter or long fence around your yard. Each spring you can expect new canes to spring forth and fill in any thin areas of your screen.

A highly drought tolerant species, the Golden Bamboo's straight upward growth makes it easy to maintain, and it's classic tropical beauty makes it hard not to love.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Golden Bamboo



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Emerald Green Thuja.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Emerald Green Thuja gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

Cindy S on Jul 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cindy
I was in the field today looking at everything and the bamboo looks fabulous. It's 4-5 ft. very thick and lush. All the varieties looked equally as good.
can you control the height to only 10-12 feet?
pop pop on May 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We have no idea. Very new to Bamboo. Doubt one can control the height however unless you continue to cut it at that height. We had a rough winter (as did many) but the bamboo seems to have survived and is starting to show signs of growth.
Does this bamboo shed it's leaves?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Bamboo doesn't go dormant, but will drop its leaves from time to time for various reasons like sudden temperature change or over watering. Leaf drop is often times normal.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
