Fishpole Bamboo, originating from China, has striking yellow-green stems with a tortoiseshell pattern and lush green foliage. It rarely flowers, sometimes taking over a decade for any blooms to appear. As a rapidly growing perennial, it's favored for creating privacy screens and hedges due to its fast growth, often reaching 2 to 3 feet (60-90 cm) annually, making it an efficient choice for landscape design.
Meet Fishpole Bamboo, or Phyllostachys aurea, a bamboo that stands tall. It's famous for its skyscraper-like culms, which can reach up to 30 feet or 9 meters (or even more, depending on where it calls home). You can identify it by its lance-shaped leaves, forming a lush, green canopy.
