japenese bamboo

japanese bamboo, how do you get rid of it!! It's in my yard, roundup does not phase it. Grows like 3 inches a day, whenever I attack it, it sends up like ten new shoots...sucks, it's relentless. It's regenerative properties are amazing : (

I am guessing you have what is actually referred to as Mexican Bamboo. Getting rid of it will take more than one season. Here is a step-by-step process to follow: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/weeds/mexican-bamboo/
