Found a treasure trove of this bamboo at an old abandoned house on our street. Apparently an unusual plant collector used to live there. Canes are 12-15' high at the highest, quite skinny, but most of it is in deep to part shade. I'd like to "rescue" some but want to know what species it is, first, for siting. Our neighbor who knows the owner personally says rescuing is just fine, so no worries about digging there. Would also dig for trade, too.

Sorry some of the pictures are sideways. They are upright on my phone, I don't know what's up.

Did you ever identify this plant? I believe it is Arundinaria gigantea, a bamboo native to the U.S. I am looking for some rhizomes to get some established at my new house in Texas, if you have the ability to share some.

Yes, I found out it is Pseudosasa japonica, Japanese Arrow Bamboo. Sorry.
