Phyllostachys pubescens, common name Moso bamboo is a monopodial bamboo, An absolute giant in all respects, with blue-green culms (canes) and dense arching foliage and have a fuzzy texture. The distinctive internodes are very short near the ground, then lengthen to a foot or more higher up the culm.
The leaves are smaller than those of many other bamboos and present a pleasant contrast to the massive culms. Moso bamboo pole stalks are considered among the biggest and most beautiful, growing to a diameter from 3 to 7 inches and towering to 80 feet with clusters of relatively small green leaves.
Native to China and Japan, the stems have many uses.
