PLANT ID – BAMBOO

Common name: Bamboo
Botanical name: Various

There are running and clumping types of bamboo. Bamboos are often planted deliberately as ornamental or screening plants.

However, they can quickly grow beyond ornamental and become a nuisance. Like knotweed, some bamboos spread rapidly though their underground stems or rhizomes.

Although you can treat them with over the counter remedies from garden centres, it can be a long and laborious process.
