Below is a faux bamboo. I believe it is called Japanese knot weed. It is huge! Covering my screen porch giving it a nice little oasis inside. It regrows each year and in the fall has beautiful white delicate flowers. But it creeps so don't want to plant it where it can spread - it will take over everything!
I have gardens all over the yard and they are just beautiful this year! So nice to have a year like this that things are happy - well except the hanging baskets, those kinda pooped out already in the heat, just couldn't keep enough water in them.
