Recent to Australia, Goldstripe Bamboo (Bambusa Multiplex) will reach an optimum height of 4-5 metres (5 metres in shade) and 600mm-1m around the base.
Nice (But Subtle) cream coloured stripes up the canes. An attractive Asian style leaf much like the Alphonse karr plant, but with much tighter habit and probably more upright like slender weavers.
Very cold hardy to -5 celcius at least did not loose a leaf last winter.
NOTE: Goldstripe is a great choice if you like slender weavers (Gracilis bamboo) but dont want as much height!
