This beautiful form of Buddha Belly bamboo has culms that emerge green and soon turn a beautiful golden-yellow with green stripes. Like the green form, it will grow straight and slender, given ideal conditions. This bamboo is best as a container plant where with proper care and pruning it can be a delightful specimen.
