Dendrocalamus

Stately and dense, dendrocalamus provides the perfect privacy screen.

Dendrocalamus differs from other types of bamboo in that it has a beautiful wide leaf, even broader than an Old Hamii leaf.   It is native to China and its culms can be used for weaving.  The dendrocalamus pictured here was planted as a privacy screen and completely hides the house next door.  It was planted in San Rafael in 2012.
