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.

The article specifically mentions which species of bamboo, clumping bamboo and the species name is mentioned in this article it is erroneous to say that the roots go everywhere if you buy the spaces the article mentions.
