POTD: Three Bamboos

POTD: Three BamboosThree Bamboos Birmingham, Alabama 2013

They have a nice bamboo grove/forest/stand at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I heard later though that bamboo, or at least golden bamboo, is an invasive species in Alabama. Really? It seems such a benign plant compared to the mother of all invasive plant species in the south–kudzu. Of course I was also surprised by the fact that the plural of bamboo is bamboos. I thought I was being bamboozled until I looked it up in the dictionary.
