Didn't know it would grow up at that latitude. Quite a bit of it here, especially in the city of Ocean Springs. I will not plant it, cut it, or dig it out. I just avoid it totally. Spraying has no effect on it. Occasionally people want it planted and I tell them they will be sorry. Nobody wants to spend the money for a deep border all-around to keep it contained. It usually is not long before it is growing in the neighbor's yard. World's worst weed.

Before you plant bamboo you better do your research. some varieties will take over your yard others are not as bad.

You know, with certain types of bamboo quickly becomming more popular for furniture and flooring in an intrest to stop cutting down so many forests, it's not always going to be a bad plant. People like things that look like they're made from wood, it's strong and sturdy and while it grows, removes carbon.
