|Fargesia rufa 'Green Panda'|
This side yard gets about 2 hours a day of direct sunlight and the rest is completely shaded by the houses. I consider it partial/full shade but not super deep dark shade because these are 1-story houses with light colored siding that still provides ambient light.
This green panda bamboo should get to be 6-8 feet tall, and tolerate grooming to become a little fountain of bamboo coming off the side of my house and complimenting the Asian-ish look of the rocks and Japanese maple tree.

It's only about 14 inches tall right now, but hopefully will put on some growth this summer. I hear it grows super fast. In the pot it was putting out a new leaf a week on each of the stalks. I guess that's pretty fast.
