    Lots of white fly, that is for sure. Could you send a picture of the entire plant in its environment? Where are you on this planet? Tropical, subtropical? Your plant zone? Please, send more information. – stormy Dec 1 '18 at 23:11

I thought I'd send a picture of bamboo leaves. Bamboo is a monocot and monocots, grasses have parallel venation. The veins in the leaves are parallel to the mid vein and to each other. Dicots have venation similar to a bird's feather.

I am sorry, I am unable to see the venation of your leaves, really need to see the entire plant. Is this a shrub, tree or herbaceous perennial?

Ginger Zingiber officinale

The photo is slightly grainy but the leaves should have "lines" along the leaf.

I'm thinking a dwarf bamboo of some variety.

  • Agree ,some bamboo. I have a very similar one that has spread all over my yard.. Cutting it to grass height with the mower does not stop it. I would hand pull it if possible. – blacksmith37 Jul 14 at 20:07
