Buddha’s Belly Bamboo
Also commonly known as Golden Bamboo, Bambusa vulgaris var. vitatta (Poaceae) is one of the most popular cultivars in the world, and can be identified by its (golden) yellow culms with green stripes. It can grow up to a height of 12 m, and a thickness of 8 cm.
Bambusa vulgaris is known for infrequent flowering and lack of seed set, facts that have been a matter of curiosity among bamboo specialists. As many as 20 incidences of flowering of this species were reported from 10 countries during the past one and a half centuries. Strangely enough, no fruit set has been reported from anywhere. The common method of propagating Bambusa vulgaris var. vittata, like other clump bamboos, is by division.
