Why Golden Bamboo Plants?
An Asian-inspired look, right in your homescape, is just a click away with the Golden Bamboo. And this variety ticks all the boxes of a landscape favorite, with drought tolerance, carefree growth, and fast privacy.
Plus, it's got the highly sought-after perk of bright golden color. The Golden Bamboo adds style and functionality to any landscape. From light green hues to gleaming gold, the Bamboo is bolstered by sabertooth leaves for a truly 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.
It's no wonder why it's called 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 sunlight, its pale green canes will transform into the brilliant golden color for which it's aptly named.

Items came late but in pretty good condition. The one plant spilled out of its pot. I translated them into the gnd that day and so far they seem to be doing OK. Time will tell how well they do.

Arrived in great shape and fast!! Already grown 6 to 12 inches within 5 to 6 weeks
Planting & Care
1. Planting: For best results, give your Golden a sunny spot that will provide some shade in the winter. The Golden Bamboo prefers loamy soil which contains a mixture of sand, silt, and clay and offers good drainage. However, the Bamboo adapts to moist soil types, provided there is good drainage. Also, since the Bamboo’s root system is shallow, provide protection from high winds.
Dig a hole with the same depth as the plant’s container and about twice its width. Carefully place the Golden plant in the hole. Backfill, remove any air pockets that may have formed while filling the hole and test the sturdiness of the plant once it's in the ground to make sure winds will not be able to topple it. Water generously and tamp down the surrounding soil.
2. Watering: Water your Golden between 2 to 5 times each week as necessary. Water frequency will differ depending on the time of year and local climate conditions. Cooler locations typically require less frequent watering than warmer areas.
3. Fertilizing: Once your Golden becomes established, you should implement a regular fertilizing schedule. High-nitrogen organic fertilizer is the best choice for Bamboo. Apply once in the summer and again in the fall.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
