    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.

    Your weeping cherry is a lovely shape Barb. I have a weeping willow but my cherry trees are just regular ones.
