[The genus Schizostachyum name comes from the Greek word schistos, cleft or divided, and stachys, ear or corn, referring to the spaced grouping of the spikelets. Culm is slender, thin walled and usually drooping at tips. Young shoots and especially the culm sheaths are covered with appressed golden brown, light or pale brown or white hairs.
