Got this in an email from someone looking for help removing it from the property it's taken over, and I'm completely scoobied as to what species or even *genus* it might be! I had figured Phyllostachys Aurea prior to this, as that's the usual culprit around here. This description is absolutely *not* P. Aurea... It was cut down in the fall, and has popped back with fresh 18" culms since. Will be going by to get photos, hopefully this evening. This has got to be distinctive enough to someone to be able to venture a guess. A large Pseudosasa, maybe? "Best I can remember on the bamboo, they had stalks about an inch thick but don't know if that was at maturity or not. The leaves were about a 15 - 18 inches or so long, about 3 - 4 inches wide and had a hint of red color in them. This was growing in an area approximately 3' by 50' on the north wall of a house." Thanks all!
