Bamboo for ID : Delhi : 070512 : AK-2: Bamboo seen at Lodhi Gardens, Delhi on the 3rd of Sept,11.
The picture is of a young shoot that caught my attention.

The mature Bamboos were at a great height.


Very interesting.
Nice design made by leaves on the stem of Bamboo.


I think, this is Gigantochloa apus.
