Dendrocalamus calostachyus is a tufted giant bamboo native to Assam, Bangladesh, China South-Central, East Himalaya, and Myanmar. 

It's an ideal timber bamboo for biomass production with its thick culm wall. No branches develop at the lower nodes, making it extremely easy to maintain and harvest in a commercial plantation. 


Dendrocalamus calostachyus is not a widely spread or known species to most people, nor outstanding to botanists. Thus very little information is found about this species. The flowering stands were found in western Yunnan province China where D. membranaceus, D. barbatus, and D. giganteus were flowering at the same time. This bamboo was called 黑埋桑 by the villagers. According to Hui Chaomao, a bamboo expert in Yunnan province, 黑埋桑 is Dendrocalamus calostachyus.


 The pictures here were taken in the flowering field, not from the internet. 


The identification might be wrong due the the very limited references available, but the pictures showed the true bamboo plants that produced our seeds.  For a commercial plantation, knowing how the bamboo will grow is more important than knowing the Latin name.
