I'm considering ordering canebrake from MO Wildflowers. I love bamboo, and would like to grow some in back of my property for privacy. I understand that the running type can be very invasive. Also, some varieties grow quite tall. Then, there's many that aren't hardy in zone 6.
I've done some research and the native canebrake sounds like a good choice. Also, the price is right. I've read that Indians use to hunt in the "canebrake" because animals would hide in it, so I thought maybe the dogs would also enjoy it without destroying it? I was also hoping to harvest some of the larger canes to use as plant supports.
All comments/opinions appreciated. Please be honest if you feel I'm making a big mistake. I've spent the past 18 years fighting the invasives that were left growing on this property by the former owner. Thanks everyone!
