Deck tree - This golden maple makes a beautiful potted tree in this tall terra cotta. Maybe a Princeton Gold Maple "Acer platanoides" or a Golden Full Moon Maple "Acer shirasawanum 'Aureum'" (small, shade)
Trees for small gardens: Olea europaea, the olive tree, grows slowly in our climate and this makes them perfect for containers. Pinch out the tips when the trees reach around to keep them bushy. Photo by Paul Debois.
