Greslania is a genus of small perennial bamboos in the grass family, endemic to New Caledonia, with 4 accepted species.[2][4][5][6]

Greslania species have woody culms emerging from short, clumping rhizomes. They generally lack lateral branches, instead growing clumps of erect culms reaching 60–350 cm (24–138 in) in height.[5]
