Dendrocalamus brandisii

(Sweet Dragon Bamboo, Teddy Bear Bamboo)

Dendrocalamus brandisii, common name: Sweet Dragon Bamboo, Teddy Bear Bamboo, is one of the tallest bamboos in the world, with thick culm walls and soft brown fur similar to D. asper.

Maximum height: 100 ft.

Maximum culm diameter: 8"

Minimum temperature 29°F

Minimum USDA hardiness zone 9B

It has a somewhat open branching habit starting several feet above ground. I usually remove any lower branches to give a cleaner, more appealing "see through" appearance in my garden. Native to India and SE Asia, this bamboo is used in construction. The new shoots are edible.
