New culms are pea
green in color with dark brown speckled culm sheaths. The culms later turn yellow with
a few randomly placed dark green stripes. Looks and grows best when grown in a warm sunny place.
Dark colored culm sheaths on the new shoots contrast greatly with the deep
yellow culms. Highly desired ornamental.
