Controlling Black Bamboo
I want to plant some beautiful P. Nigra in a narrow, long brick edged container. I'm thinking as long as I watch the rhizomes once/twice year, I should be okay from them breaking through the bricks (which are only held with cement between them).
The container area is about 2.5" high, 2.5 wide, and extends about 30 feet, and another section extends about 10 feet.
Would it be alright to plant w/o barrier and will these simply break through?
Also, I've read that they will take full sun. Is this correct? We get a few days/year of 100+ weather sometimes.
