Week 8- Toms River, NJ

On March 4th, 2023, at 4:17 pm, I visited Toms River, New Jersey. On this day, in NJ, the weather was 43 degrees fahrenheit with a cloudy sky. This picture was taken in the streets of Toms River and in this neighborhood, there were many houses that had Yellow Groove Bamboo around the houses. Yellow Groove Bamboo (Phyllostachys aureosulcata) is a species of bamboo that is native to China and widely cultivated in other parts of the world. It is a clumping bamboo with distinctive yellow grooves or stripes on its green culms (stems), which can grow up to 40 feet tall and 3 inches in diameter. The leaves are long and slender, and the plant produces small, edible shoots in the spring. Yellow Groove Bamboo is often used for landscaping and as a privacy screen due to its fast growth rate and dense foliage.
