Texas Scarlet Flowering Quince We were almost loosing this a few years ago, so we moved it and it is well on it's was to recovery. Contorted Willow One of my favorite. This plant is about 25 years old. It is planted in a 5 gallon bucket with holes in the bottom. I uproot it every few years and chop all roots off that have grown out of it. That should keep the plant small. Plus I keep it cut to about 5 foot. Weeping Cherry I keep it trimmed to the size here but it is planted right in the ground. Barb in Pa.
