    Is it possible to grow this in a pot to keep it under 6-8 ft? I have limited space.

      Hi Belinda,
      These are sometimes used for bonsai and as such, with typical bonsai culture (wide and shallow pot, roots disturbed to stunt, pruned back vigorously), they may be kept indefinitely in potted culture. There is also a middle ground–plant up to a large pot (5 to 10 gallon) and keep trimmed back to desired size.

      We haven’t ever had the need for such a thing.
