Looking for hardy non-invasive shade tolerant variety...

...for here in E Central KY; good fertile spot, it would be an understory plant though. The cane would serve as a screen (16 - 20 ft row) for a sewage lagoon and some of it would get partial sun (maybe as much as 1/2 day) later in the day.

Any suggestions?

I have a hedge of Fargesia rufa 'Green Panda'. It is in an eastern exposure, under a large Pin Oak so it gets morning sun, then filtered sun mid day. It took a couple of years before it took off. They are not cheap, but I divided them every Spring so before long, there was a hedge of them. No winter burn and they do tolerate well our hot, humid summer nights. This is a fairly wet climate so no need to water even under the oak. (Purchased from one of the big box stores a few years ago, though now, I don't see them there.)

Here in KY you can find yellow groove growing out all over the place for free. I have tons of it and most has been dug up from the sides of roads and things
