Few things are as peacefully inviting as a gentle breeze blowing through a bamboo forest. While mountainsides covered in giant bamboo are not part of the American landscape, by installing a few Madake Japanese Timber Bamboo plants, you can create a miniature version of a bamboo forest in your own backyard.

Not only does Madake (Phyllostachys bambusoides Madake) Japanese Timber Bamboo make a serene and lovely grove, the thick, straight canes - 2 to 6-inch diameter and up to 60-feet tall - are one of the best bamboos to use for building projects.

Instrument-makers also favor Madake for flutes and didgeridoos because of its exceptionally strong, thick-walled canes.
