Phyllostachys bambusoides 'Castillon Inversa'
Common Name: Castillon Inversa

Expected Height: 35 feet
Diameter: 2 inches
Hardiness: 5
USDA Zone recommended 7 through 10

This form of Japanese timber bamboo has green culms and a bright yellow groove/sulcus, the reverse coloration of Castillon, hence the name. Planted together (as we have done at the Classical Chinese Garden in Portland, Oregon), Castillon Inversa and Castillon make a striking combination.
