Golden Goddess (Bambusa multiplex cv Golden Goddess)
The perfect non-invasive bamboo for smaller gardens, Golden Goddess has a well-mannered clumping form that can be easily maintained at under 8 feet tall. A fantastic container or screen plant with a graceful, arching form ideal for an exotic tropical or Asian garden effect.
With starburst clusters of ten or more small leaves on each twig distinguish this cultivar from its brothers. Leaf and culms mature to a golden colour when growing in full sunlight The outward-reaching form is delicately beautiful particularly after rain when the extra weight flattens the form into a sparkling cascade. The strong mostly solid culms are used when young for cane woven basket making. A beautiful garden piece.
