Here in zone 6 eastern Wa. this grows and spreads like mad that being said is why I made a hedge of it last fall using a barrier that is 40mil thick 28 inches deep. All I have to do is wait 3 years for a 10 or 12 foot evergreen hedge.

Neutral Clary On Feb 25, 2010, Clary from Lewisburg, PA (Zone 6b) wrote:

Cold hardy bamboos are invasive in mid-Atlantic USA. They are well-adapted to our climate. Seeding is less of a problem than the rapid uncontrolled spread of bamboo plantings. While these exotic plants are interesting in gardens, many gardeners do not restrain them or consider the result of passing their property to a new owner who lacks interest in maintaining a garden.
