Phyllostachys aurea is cultivated as an ornamental plant for gardens. In the United States, it is considered an invasive species that crowds out native species and is difficult to remove. It is the most commonly cultivated bamboo in the United States. It is a cold hardy bamboo, performing well in USDA Plantzones 6 to 10, (Connecticut to Florida). It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. P. aurea's lush foliage make desirable for ornamental purposes and privacy hedges; and its characteristic 'knotty' compressed lower internodes render it desirable among collectors. It is well-suited to the making of bamboo pipes
