Bamboo is a member of the grass family, Poaceae and is the fastest growing plant in the
world. Bamboo, like most grasses, spreads by rhizomes. Bamboo is separated primarily into
two groups: Clumping and Running (spreading). Clumping bamboo have short rhizomes and will
grow (or spread) just a few inches each growing season. Running bamboo have long rhizomes
and can grow (or spread) several feet each growing season. Running bamboo can form dense
forests as seen in the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
