Is this bamboo or grass?

Home Depot had some of these about 2 years ago and I thought it was ornamental grass. I put it under a night blooming jasmine bush and it never grew. So I moved it to a part sunny spot and more water and it grew 10 times the size in about 6 months. If this is a bamboo does it need a place by itself in full sun? Is it going to continue growing taller and wider? It is one of the few plants the insects have not eaten so I want to keep it.

Oops, I found out that it is a bamboo-like grass named Tiger Grass.

Bamboo is a grass. Many people don't think of it as such because of it's appearance.
