Can anybody tell what kind of Bamboo this is? It's in my friend's backyard and it has spread like crazy and it has become quite a problem for her. It's not running toward her house but rather towards all the neighbor's yards, except one.
My friend would like to eradicate it, she cuts it down but the next year it's ten feet tall she said. I got 6 pieces and have planted them in pots but I'm not going to plant them in the yard here, they are staying in containers, there is no way I'm giving them a chance to run here. I'd guess it's some kind of Phyllostachys but I don't know which one. I have this link to some photos of different bamboos if it helps anyone with an id. - http://www.bamboogarden.com/cold hardy bamboo.html This is suburban Kansas City, MO., zone 5b.
Thanks if anyone can help.
