Chusquea delicatula is a South American bamboo found in the Andean mountains of Peru including the areas around Machu Picchu. It's a highy arching bamboo so much so that its culms have a thin viney characteristic and tips of its culms often touch the ground. The branching from the nodes of its culms shoot out in all directions in a star-like formation. Mature height for the bamboo is around 3 meters length.
