It is also equally at home in tropical island design themes. In the landscape it can be used as a clump of vertical poles for a columnar element or planted in mass for a fast growing barrier, screen or privacy hedge between properties. The clumping, non-invasive habit of Golden Goddess make it an easy, low maintenance choice for homeowners. Pruned properly these plants are spectacular with night lighting trained on their golden canes which cast exotic, striped shadows in the garden. Bamboo is quite adaptable to containers provided it is given adequate water and nitrogen to sustain vigorous growth and an overall lush appearance.Companion PlantsJapanese Maple (Acer); Azalea (Azalea); Lily of the Valley (Pieris); Peony (Paeonia); Pachysandra (Pachysandra)
