Dendrocalamus sikkimensis

A beautiful big bamboo species with culms that turn orange when exposed to direct sunlight.  The shoots are edible and popular in the Philippines where it is widely known as “Sweet Shoot Bamboo”.  Sikkimensis really stands out in the landscape with its orange coloured culms and masses of large green leaves and makes an excellent timber. This bamboo is very tough and a real eye catcher for those with the space to own one of these giants. Prefers  a full sun/part shade position.
