    Some kind of verigated bamboo? Thanks. Really easy to dig up.

    Looks like bamboo, but never seen bamboo that color. Maybe some type of yuca?

    Yeah, I don't recall ever seeing bamboo growing, but thought it might look something like that.

    Its hollow on the inside. I've seen it before but have no idea if its even a member of the bamboo family.

    Bamboo comes in several different varieties, and growth habits.
    Getting to a specific name you can do some googling.
