Here is a shoot of Dendrocalamnus latiflora, the bamboo with the biggest leaves.  Shoots grow to 150mm diameter and 25 metres tall.  

This is Phyllostachys bambusoides.  Bambusoides is what the Japanese use for scaffolding and its timber is tough and straight, free of branches for many metres, and relatively untapered.  Its shoots are also good to eat.  It is an extremely ornamental bamboo, which needs bit of space to get big.   One plant will eventually cover half an acre unless contained.  Ideal for farms for erosion control.
