Bamboo flowers

Bamboo is often associated with China but it grows throughout South East Asia. It is unusual as a type of grass for not flowering each year. Some species of bamboo (there are 500 species in China) take up to 120 years before they flower. After flowering the bamboo plant dies. Because bamboo can cover whole mountains the simultaneous death of bamboo plants can have severe effects on the creatures like the Giant Panda that depend on it.
