Abstract: The morphological characteristics of the floral organs of Bambusa intermedia Hsueh et Yi were observed. Its inflorescence belonged to the indefinite inflorescence, and each of pseudospikelets had dormant buds. The floret type was of open type, and its fundamental structure included lemma(1), lodicule(3), stamens(6) and pistil(1) with plumate stigma and three branches. The developmental sequence of these structures in florets was lemma→palea→lodicules→ stamens→pistil. The developmental sequence of florets in spikelet was from base to top. Its ovary was unilocular, with parietal placentation, and dual-integument enclosing the anatropous ovule. The anther walls contained 4 cell layers and a lot of aborti onsoccured.

Key words: flower bud, anther, ovary, abortion
