Hi all,
I have noticed Phyllostachys aurea flowering in about 5 sites around Auckland New Zealand. Anyone else noticed anything around the world?
Thanks, Mark Mortimer

Mine doesn't. Are you sure? Any specific Aurea cultivar?

Hi Tarzanus,
Yep I'm sure it's plain old aurea. Here are some photos one of my clients sent me, but I have since seen the same thing in a number of other locations.

I also have common form of P. aurea. I will see next year if it decides to start flowering. Perhaps you in the southern hemisphere are a season earlier. 8)
Hopefully our winter won't decimate it.

This species is the most common bamboo in Texas, so I will be sure to check as many groves as I can. Of course, they might all be one clone.

I did check one grove in SE Texas today, and it is not flowering.

The following might be of interest to some following this thread. See the section on "Seed production":
