My local garden centre has Heavenly Bamboo for sale at a discounted price and I am tempted to buy. I am wondering if this has impossible to remove roots like other bamboos or is it no relation?

Just followed the link to see what it looks like, definitely on my wish list now.

I can highly recommend this plant. I have this in a pot. I have had it for yeas and really love it. I have just purchsed 2 more of the dwarf variety 'Firepower' and planted them in the garden ( cheap as they were looking poorly so I couldn't resist ) both doing well. They are no relation to bamboo and imo very good value. Evergreen. Good coloured young foliage in spring followed in May/June by panicles of creamy white flowers then another change of colour in autumn followed by red berries. They require little to no pruning - I only remember taking off the spent flower stems after the berries have faded. They are also supposed to be good feng shui to position them near an door or entrance.
