This 3 foot shoot popped up in a shady spot in my yard almost overnight. It looks like bamboo to me but my family is sure its some kind of palm. Any thoughts?
Yes, it looks like a bamboo to me also. They don’t just appear by chance – you must have a neighbor with plants that are spreading to your yard. If not, then we have a big mystery! It is not a native species.
