Giant Bamboo, Dendrocalamus giganteus, San Diego Botanical Gardens, Encinitas, California. The San Diego Botanic Gardens has one of the largest collections of Bamboo in the world and also harvests bamboo to feed the giant pandas at the San Diego Zoo! Giant Bamboo can grow to approximately 100 ft. in height and is a clumping bamboo. A full grown plant is truly an impressive sight!
