You might post this on Questions where there are a couple of bamboo experts whoc rarely look at blogs.. Add the variety too as they vary a lot.

Idk the variety, much less if it clumps or runs. It's what people in the south call Cane Poles. If that helps any.

At Steragram.

I don't think that's a variety - lots of them can be used as garden canes. Anyway now you've posted this on Questions you might get further help.
I'd never risk planting any myself as I've heard to many horror stories of them running out of control. This is why its recommended to use a barrier membrane round them.

I already know about the rizome (sp?) barrier. Just don't know when to install it. At Steragram.
