Clumping type bamboos are easier to contain than running types. For your situation, I'd recommend one of the following: Bambusa 'Alphonse Karrii': Alphonse Karr Bamboo - Clumping bamboo with green striped yellow culms to 25' tall by 1 1/2" wide. Sun/Light Shade. Give occasional irrigation. Hardy to 12 degrees F.
Bambusa multiplex 'Golden Goddess': Golden Goddess Bamboo - Clumping Bamboo with thin green culms to 6'-10' tall by 1/2? wide. Sun/Light Shade. Give occasional irrigation. Hardy to 12 degrees F.
Bambusa multiplex 'Riviereorum' Chinese Goddess Bamboo - A fine textured small clumping bamboo to 6? tall with ?? culms. Sun/Light Shade. Medium water needs. Hardy to 12 degrees F.
