Of the many options available for running bamboo, my favorites for small gardens are Phyllostachys nigra (black bamboo) and Phyllostachys aurea (golden bamboo) because of their slow growth rate and stunning culm coloring. Golden bamboo works well against a dark backdrop, and black bamboo provides great contrast to lighter plantings in the garden.

Growing bamboo in a container. Containing root growth is a big concern with running bamboo plantings. Some running bamboo can flourish in a container. Because the plant is above ground and often surrounded by hardscape, all the growth is concentrated within the contained space. You will need to make sure the container is well irrigated, though, or your bamboo's leaves may go brown.
