It’s a winter hardy giant bamboo. In spring, when new culms shoot, you can see how fast the Moso will grow, new shoots can grow up to a 1m a day, depending on weather and soil conditions. Young culms have grey-green colour on them. Young shoots are edible. In china they cut the tops off to let the in sun in the crop so the poles grow as straight as possible, with the tops they make brooms out of them.
