The Difference Between Running and Clumping Bamboo

Running bamboos also known as invasive bamboo is monopodial and have long rhizomes that are quick to spread horizontally. Running bamboo often travels very quickly into unwanted areas,
Clumping bamboos are also known as non-invasive bamboo plants. Clumping bamboo is sympodial and has shorter rhizomes that stay closer to their point of origin and do not spread so rapidly. These bamboo plants stay in a tight clump somewhat like a hedge plant. Because of their narrow growing pattern, they are well suited for tight spaces, small backyard privacy, ornamental uses as well as large property screening, hotels, resorts, horse farms, ranches, commercial, industrial, apartments, reclaimed water plants, erosion protection, windbreaks, Sound and noise mitigation, and blocking bright lights.

The Difference Between Running and Clumping Bamboo

Running bamboos are monopodial and have long rhizomes that are quick to spread horizontally. This makes them ideal for covering wide areas with greenery. Additionally, they are usually used in parks to create natural mazes.

Clumping bamboos are sympodial and have shorter rhizomes that stay closer to their point of origin and do not spread so rapidly. Because of their more narrow growing pattern, they are well suited for tight spaces such as small gardens.
