Phyllostachys dulcis is called "Sweetshoot Bamboo" because its shoots have a particularly good taste. It is one of the most important species for shoot production. Introduced from Zhejiang into the U.S. in 1908 when it was called Phyllostachys henryi but in 1945 Floyd McClure described it as dulcis.
