    I purchased a clumping bamboo from a very large reputable local nursery. They only carried two types of bamboo, a clumping type and a spreading type. I've never planted bamboo but have read extensively about planting and using barriers. I thought I would plant this bamboo in a small area next to my pond waterfall and keep it cofined. Unfortunately, the nursery couldn't tell me what type of bamboo they are selling. I would like to know its potential height, sun requirements, and growing habits. Can someone please help try to identify this bamboo? Many thanks in advance!!!

    Looks like a <i>Bambusa</i>. <i>B. multiplex</i> is a common one. These are not very hardy.
