Bamboo should be selected carefully as there are some varieties which are not winter hardy and there are others which become a liablility because of their spreading nature. In general it is not a recommended landscape plant, particularly for small areas. It can however be grown in containers as a fine houseplant. To investigate the types of bamboo that are available you might lok into some specialty suppliers such as Burt Associates Bamboo or Glasshouse Works or consult with the American Bamboo Society Source List for more information.
