Golden bamboo

Phyllostachys aurea

Golden bamboo, one of the most common types, is a medium-sized, fast-spreading plant with finely textured leaves and attractive golden-yellow stems. This evergreen is often used as a hedge or screening plant to provide quick privacy.

Because this is a running-type bamboo, it's best to plant it in a contained area, such as between driveways, so it won't spread out of control and takeover a lawn or garden.
