I have a 24" round planter on my back deck, and would like to put a Harry Lauder Walking Stick in it, but am afraid it may overgrow the planter. Has anyone tried to keep this bush small, perhaps by keeping it trimmed back? The deck is in full sun. Or alternatively, any suggestions for another contorted speciman plant that would not be cramped in a pot? Thanks for any insight. Deb

Have you tried the container forum. This forum tends to be more about veggies. ALTHO...I grow daylies in my EB's

I get ideas every year for my pots and color combos from looking at the container thread. The walking stick is however, something I havent seen .

At the garden center that I work at, we have Harry Lauders in fairly small nursery pots, maybe 3 gallon, that are large specimens, so I think a 24" container, if it's not too shallow, should be just fine for yours, just keep an eye on the watering. These are beautiful plants, I'm trying to find a spot to fit one in in my yard...
