Plant bamboo wisely (2)

Many types of bamboo will also  run  - the well-behaved bamboos like Phyllostachys aureo-sulcata and P. nigra grow relatively slowly and clump up gradually, but some more vigorous types like P. bissettii will throw out new stems which are barely underground and can come up a considerable distance from the parent plant.  Planting in a sunken container is supposed to help, but as bamboos can easily split containers they will escape quite easily .
