Timber Bamboo Prison in Victoria
I like this large type of bamboo planted in both Vancouver and Victoria. I guess some are afraid to plant such a large bamboo. If I had a field, I'd sell the canes to the rest of Canada. Maybe they can use these for scaffolding in Vancouver like they do in Hong Kong. I've noticed that Vancouver has some flora not to mention residents that remind me of HK.
