A bamboo shoot from Barbara in SC

Posted on |

Found this yesterday in the shrubbery bed next to our driveway. Took the picture about 8:30 this morning. The plant is about 5” tall, and seems woody. There are several others nearby.

Hi Barbara,

this is a bamboo shoot. I would guess that it is coming from a neighbor’s planting – they can spread underground.  Good luck!
