If you read the first page of this thread you'll see my diatribe about the negative aspects of bamboo that we had in our yard in Ft. Worth. It definitely gets colder in Ft. Worth than coastal Texas, and the bamboo there did fine.

OK, since my earlier post I've learned there are many species of bamboo, and some don't run like the species we had in our yard in Ft. Worth. I recently visited a friend who has clump type bamboo along a fence line and I love it!! In fact, we're thinking of putting some in our yard. Makes great privacy screens and looks nice too.
