which useful or edible plant grow very fast? Climbing or like bamboo?
Are there plants which grows in some month 3-4 m high? We need shade, and a useful plant would be nice. Our climate is subtropics.

Hedwig, thithonia is an excellent fast growing plant to about 3-4 meters. It is mostly used for making mulch. Has pretty yellow flowers which attract pollinators, too.

You can just pull the leafs off and cut them up as mulch or chop the whole thing up and then smash them up with the lawn mower, they make wonderful mulch when used fresh.
I'm growing black and red sugarcane here, the possums do like to nibble the sweet tips when they are just starting out.
You can glow them in clumps like bamboo. best part about them is you can chop off a bit and chew on them, mmmmm

I'll look for the common name of thy... sugar cane seems to be good as well to satisfy our possums, and prevent (?) them eating our vegetable
