Bamboo roots go everywhere so keep them in a contained soil area.

We found a wonderful alternative to bamboo - non-invasive and has that lovely oriental feel and is fast growing in the warmer climes. Tiger Grass - ours has been in a year from small plants and now over 3ft high. No objections from our neighbours.
