When I bought my home there was a small patch of a yellow, reed-like plant that grows to be about 4 ft. Due to my inattention and failure to appreciate how invasive it is, it has now overtaken a considerable part of my garden, ~0.15 acre.
Does anyone recognize this plant? Someone told me that it was a species of bamboo.
It is difficult to envision digging up the whole affected area. I would be willing to use an herbicide, but have fruit trees in the area. For the time being I just mow it.
