does any one have any? anyone know where to order it from? a friend today asked if i knew anything about it and i told her all i know is that is grows very fast and can spread so you should contain it. i found out today from a gardening book that there is a clumping kind too which doesn't need to be contained- although if it were me i would "just in case..". anyhow- anyone have any ideas on how to get a hold of some???

Here is a link to a bamboo supplier. I've been dreaming of getting some bamboo for some time now. I really want some of that timber bamboo. It can get up to 6 or 7 inches wide and 70-90 feet tall!. I have visions of making my own fences using the large bamboo as the posts and a smaller diameter bamboo for in between.

Feel free to clean that link up for me somebody. For some reason I can pull the URL into the message box like here, but not into the URL box where I could clean it up myself. I don't feel like typing all that mess.

Okay, I tried it and it didn't work for me either. Let's try it a different way.
Bambu-u

And here's another one

Bamboo Garden

Here is a site that gives hardiness of various bamboos as well as as goupings of different sizes of bamboo and bamboo for specific growing situations. Also, care and feeding and control of the running types.

I have 7 bamboo plants, of 3 different varieties. The tallest has 4" thick canes and gets to about 80'tall. The smallest is in a pot and gets to 4' tall. All are the clumping type. Unless you have acres of land, I strongly suggest you Do not plant running bamboos, even if contained. They will escape and run and you will have a huge problem on your hands.
