Dendrocalamus brandisii (Sweet Dragon Bamboo, Teddy Bear Bamboo)

One of the tallest bamboos in the world, with its thick culms and large, tropical leaves, it is a most impressive specimen in the south Florida garden.  The tender, sweet, edible shoots are an added attraction (only harvest the shoots when the plant needs thinning out).
