A new variegated bamboo?????

Post by call » Sun Mar 17, 2013 9:50 pm

I have just noticed that on my phyllostachys aureocaulis the new growth is variegated varying from leaf to leaf. it is a young plant and the green grooves are just developing so maybe if it keeps its variegation it would turn in to a really striking bamboo. I have read on google that variegation sometimes pops up in bamboos quite unexpectedly but if I could stabilise the variegation you might find a phyllostachys aureosulcata f.aureocaulis variegata for sale in your nearest GC :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
