I recently purchased a home this winter and am really enjoying "discovering" the various plants that are popping up all over my yard. However...there is one plant that has recently been revealed to me as "Michigan bamboo" -- and it is ALL over my yard and creeping over into my neighbors' yards. All I know is it can get up to 10 feet tall and is very invasive...but nothing more. I am trying to search the web for some further info, but no to avail. Has anyone encountered this plant (weed?!) and if so, do you have any info on it? Is it beneficial in any way or should I begin a battle?
Michigan Bamboo furniture, anyone?
