Phyllostachys bambusoides - Giant Timber Bamboo, Madake


Giant Timber Bamboo is a running bamboo that spreads through underground rhizomes. In cooler climates this Bamboo can stay in tighter clumps but it is best to use a barrier of sorts to keep it in the area intended. Phyllostachys bambusoides has dark green canes that can reach up to 5" in diameter. This Bamboo is not native to Japan but it is a very important building material there as it is the strongest of the temperate timber bamboos. Madake bears glossy, dark green leaves, has an upright growth habit and grows to 72 foot high with an average 50 foot spread but it is a running Bamboo so the spread can be infinite.
