Is Bamboo Invasive?

Bamboo are excellent evergreen screening plants that have been given a bad name because people have allowed them to spread.   If planted using rhizome barrier (a machine polished plastic) then they are guaranteed not to spread. If watered regularly and fed with Chempak no.2 these plants will provide a graceful screen, which do not block out light, but obscure views.
