Dendrocalamus strictus, the Male Bamboo, is native to India. It reaches from 8 to 16 meters high with a diameter of 8 cm. In cooler zones it will be shorter and can be grown in container. The stems have many uses.
Bamboos are cultivated for fast growing erosion control, privacy screens, and wind breaks, and the bamboo can be trimmed to the desired height. The Male bamboo is pale blue when young and becomes greenish grey or yellow as it ages.
