Bamboo is actually a collection of over 1,200 species in the subfamily Bambusoideae of the grass family Poaceae. All bamboo species are evergreen perennial flowering plants with hollow stems and rhizome root systems that enable their rapid growth. Bamboo has a myriad of uses including building materials, writing material, fabric, and food. The Arundinaria genus is the only bamboo native to the United States and North America. Clumping varieties can grow in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-10 and will not spread or become invasive. Running varieties, which can grow in Zones 4-9, can quickly become invasive and must be planted in containers or surrounded by an underground root barrier at least 24" deep.
