Red face Golden Bamboo Plants and keeping them in a pot??

I would like to put some Bamboo plants in my backyard but I do not want to risk them spreading all over. I have thought that maybe keeping them in large 30+ gallong pots would still add the lushness to my yard. Does anyone know if "golden bamboo" does well in a pot indefinitely? How long do they last if they cannot spread? Thank you!

If you live in a cold climate, you will need to move bamboo indoors for winter. A 3 gallon size can go in a 5 gallon pot. Next year, it goes in a 10 gallon pot. The third year to 15 gallon pot. The 4th year you have to divide the plant. After that, you have to divide every other year.

If you live in a cold climate, you might want to consider a winter hardy bamboo. This would save time and energy moving the large pots.
