A massive bamboo species that resembles Dendrocalamus giganteus. Used for construction and for its edible shoots.
New import. This bamboo is extremely rare and we should have limited propagules available by late 2016.
From SW Yunnan, China, in the Xishuangbanna region (near Lijiang). We have only one test-specimen but expect that it will grow well in similar conditions as D.giganteus thrives in (South Florida).
