We have bamboo growing in our backyard. It's not the invasive, spreading kind, but the clumping kind. Every once in a while, I get a new shoot somewhere it shouldn't be, but for the most part, it stays contained. I love the screen it provides all year. I love how it moves with the breeze, like it's doing a slow, swaying dance. I love how the snow clings to it in the winter and how the stalks gently bend over in the rain or under the weight of the snow.
