Angela’s Garden Notes:

You may have seen many heavenly bamboos with red foliage, but this is the first one on the market with lime green foliage.  Each spring, the new growth emerges bright, limey chartreuse and then fades to grass green as the summer heats up.  Brighten up your borders and foundation plantings with this bright yellow spring color.  It will add excitement and a much needed boost of color each season as your bulbs and early spring perennials start to bloom.
