Will Black Bamboo Grow Under a House?
I recently planted some black bamboo in a small triangular planting area directly next to my house. The planting area is formed on two sides by a concrete wall with the house forming the third side. I assumed that the bamboo would be contained by the concrete. Then it occured to me that the rhizomes might grow under the sill plate (only a foot deep)and then burrow through the hard packed clay basement floor of our house. Do you think that the bamboo will spread in a dry sunless hard packed area?
