The name says it all. The largest of all bamboos. Tremendous culms that do not want to grow straight unless the stand is well managed. Huge culms yielding large quantities of heavy timber. The best specimen seen in Australia is in the Flecker Gardens at Cairns.

Only suited for the wet equatorial regions.
