Giganteus

giganteus-widjawa2Dendrocalamus giganteus

This is the big one – to about 100 feet with 12 inch diameter canes. Jaw dropping.

Not really great structural material (if you want very large diameter lumber please see Black Asper).

We have two clones – one from the gardens in Bogor Indonesia and another from China.  The jury is still out but we don’t think they are the same.

The Bogor clone is the one that is famous in the U.S. as it is the one viewable at Quail Gardens in San Diego.  It is the one that we have available for sale.  It is the one viewable in the photo.
