An old-time favorite, the culms are straight and erect with relatively short branches forming fairly open clumps. Culm walls are thick, but soft. This is the famous Oldhamii timber bamboo used throughout Walt Disney World. Oldhamii produces tall and very straight timber in a tight clumping pattern. It is truly a well behaved giant. This is a very easy plant to grow which requires little attention once rooted. Commonly used for large privacy hedges and windbreaks on large properties.  Is reported to have good tasting shoots.
