By the way if you where closer to me I would help you out by coming and digging some of it up. I would love to have some winter hardy bamboo on my place

Trust me, old, you don't want bamboo. There ar quite a few places around here where the previous generations set out a small patch of bamboo to have fishing poles and now it's a big patch. Somebody did along a stream in a bottom in the mountain town of Tryon, NC, and the stuff has spread along the banks. Daughter and SIL bought a new house in Charleston, SC, and somebody bought the house next door and planted bamboo. Before daughter moved they were fighting bamboo spreading over the line. Of course, Charleston is subtropical, but Tryon's not. Bamboo is not as big a pest as Kudzu, but it's up there.

Somebody educate me, please. There are a bunch of different varieties of bamboo. Some are not so intrusive. In the mountains of WNC there are lots of patches that seem to be well controlled. Others growing right to the edge of the highway.

Kudzu, if growing where goats can get to it, can be a great source of feed. But, if it gets over the fence you can't run fast enough to keep it down in the summer.

Reason I want it is to stop a creek from eating my land and yes I know it grows up fast and all and want it down on the creek banks.
