Phyllostachys edulis - known as Moso bamboo - moso being the Chinese translation of 'mau zhu' hairy. The young culms are covered in soft, fuzzy, velvety hairs giving them protection from insect infestation. Having been grown in the west for around the last 100 years, Moso - a native of China - has been growing there for centurys. It reaches heights of up to 100' though generally 40' - 50' tall, and has a general diameter of 4" - 7". Moso has small leaves for its size, thus making this bamboo look even taller, and in a mature grove the leaves have a feathery, soft look about them. The bamboo is green and turns yellow in constant sunlight. Moso bamboo is in great demand for construction scaffolding, flooring, paper making, utensils, tubing, moso-rayon fibre textiles, and in the west for ornamental construction, and apparently the young shoots are delicious to eat.
