This was the view outside my car this morning as I sat at the stoplight a couple blocks from my house. Yes, those plants are actually touching the car, and would be sticking into the car if the window was down. Note that despite how it looks, I do not live in a tropical jungle.
Fortunately it'll be getting cold soon, or I might not be able to see the road.
Note to future landscapers: This is why you don't plant bamboo in Indiana.
