Bamboo in Ohio

Bamboo in Ohio

Hi! I'm a little new here! I have been enjoying all the beautiful pictures flowing through my friends page! :) And now my question: I live in southern Ohio. ( I know nothing about zones but we do have very extreme weather...it is not unusual to have several weeks at or below zero with a lot of freeze and thaw. Very hot--90s--and humid summers.) Anyway...I have been toying with the idea of bamboo around the perimeter of our backyard. It does grow here; they have quite a bit at the Cincy Zoo. What advice do you have about it and will it survive extreme changes in weather? We have a lot of maple trees too; would this be a problem? Thanks!
