(Phyllostachys viridis)
Described by his Austin growers as ‘tall, yellow and handsome,’ Robert Young bamboo gets up to 45’ tall and only a few feet wide—perfect for those skinny Park Cities lots where your neighbors are Right There. Distinctive yellow trunks glow on a gloomy day. But use protection against this robust grower or face the consequences—we suggest a nice concrete-filled trench all around. Regular breaking off of the invasive shoots a couple of times a year is also manageable.
