This is a beautiful tree, but it does grow very fast about a foot a year at least and it can reach 60ft. However, it can be pruned. I had mine pruned by someone who had spent a lot of time working in Japan, and knew just where to cut it so that the buds would shoot into new branches. Also best to prune it when it is dormant in winter, to minimise the risk of disease. I also have one in a pot, which I inherited from a friend. Although it looks fine, I wouldn't really recommend it as a container plant. It seems such a shame to put such a magnificent tree in a pot, however big the pot is.
