Hi Hermine, and All,

Here in the South bamboo is not an option, for anything!

We have a way too nurturing climate for it and it is so invasive here

it can nearly not be eradicated. (Only with help from chemicals not

available to homeowners.)

Clumping bamboo. Does not run, can easily be kept in bounds...well
in places where bamboo is normal and natural, it may be in a
densely plant-populated place, this environment nurtures an
understory of plants which require the protection of a dense
competitive plant environment.

I wonder what bamboo is so invasive, since there are many other cane type
plants which people call bamboo but which are not.
