Please help identify our bamboo as clumping or running
We bought a house that came with a stand of bamboo, which we now want to get rid of. (We don't want to do the recurring maintenance to keep it from spreading beyond its barrier like it's starting to.)
I read that it's easier to remove clumping bamboo than running bamboo. But before we start trying to remove it ourselves, can anyone help us identify whether what we have is clumping or running?
