Description Spikelets several-flowered, terminating short, much reduced branches of small condensed inflorescences, these approximate on the relatively slender branches of the flowering culms subtended by bract-like sheaths which are readily deciduous; inflorescence at first appearing like a single spikelet, but gradually developing short branches from the axils of the glume-like bracts, thus continuing until the inflo- rescence is a dense cluster of spikelets; glumes wanting; lemmas firm, obscurely several-nerved, acute or awn-tipped; keels of palea wingless; stamens 6. Tall erect bamboos growing in large clumps.
