Thysanolaena latifolia (Bamboo Grass, Tiger Grass, Asian Broom Grass, Rumput Buloh/ Teberau in Malay)

The dried leaves of Bamboo Grass or Asian Broom Grass are used as wrappers for glutinous rice dumplings which are traditionally made during the fifth month of the lunar calendar to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival.
