Considered a grass, the bamboo is a most useful species. Its woody, hollow, round, straight, jointed stems grow to the height of forty feet and upward. The flowers grow in large panicles, from the joints of the stalk, placed three in a parcel, close to their receptacles. Old stalks grow to five or six inches in diameter, and are so hard and durable they can be used for building and all sorts of furniture, water pipes, and poles. The smaller stalks are used for walking sticks, flutes, etc.
