Arundo Golden Chain is a large reed like grass that grows similar to bamboo. I often suggest it instead of bamboo as it does not spread as quickly and has a similar look. Arundo Golden Chain grows to around 12 feet tall with green and yellow stripped foliage usually 1 to 2 inches wide and 1 foot long or more held out on large cane like stems. Great for blocking neighbors and making a living screen. Plants grow very quickly and can be a problem if grown in water on on edges of lakes or ponds.
