fast growning border trees/shrubs

I would like to plant a tall fast growing privacy border in my yard, it has dappled sunlight, approx 60% shade. I was told bamboo might be the solution. However I need to know the differences in bamboo, I'm sure I don't want an invasive bamboo, what about a clumping bamboo? I live in the Orlando area, and will be able to irrigate whatever I plant. Help and thanks!

You do have to be cautious when planting bamboo. I've heard horror stories of bamboo battles in the garden. First, use the Plant Encyclopedia on our BHG.com website to develop a list of choices. It has a "plant finder" that lets you select criteria like shade conditions and the height you'd like. From there, talk to a local Certified Nursery Professional for his or her recommendations. (CNPs work in garden centers all over the place.) The advantage in talking to a local professional is that he or she will have first-hand experience with the plants you're considering.
