Fully grown, the bamboo, also known as running bamboo or giant timber bamboo, can grow 40 feet tall and spread out 15 to 20 feet per year, according to Caryn Rickel of Seymour, founder of the Institute of Invasive Bamboo Research. At her home and two other properties she owns, she said, it's invaded a septic system, driveway, gazebo and other areas.
