Rhododendrons Christmas Cheer, Cunninghams White, Choremia, Gloria Mundii, Elizabeth, Scarlet Wonder, Gartendirektor Rieger and Woodcock are all slower growing compact varieties which we stock at our nursery. Pictures of all these can be found on our website www.heaselandsnursery.co.uk .
Varieties of Acer ideal for pots would be the Japanese Maples such as Acer palmatum Dissectum and Atropurpureum which are very slow growing, Acer japonicum Aureum is one of the best yellow foliaged plants or for something a bit quicker growing, Acer palmatum Bloodgood or Osakazuki would be ideal. Any good garden centre should stock Japanese Maples in varying sizes and price.
If you wanted more of a tree in a pot, try Acer pseudoplatanus Brilliantissimum or Acer negundo Flamingo. You would not be dissappointed.
