can acers (japanses maples) survive in pots?

On plant japanese maple palmatium



Yes, as long as they're put in the right position, and it's a suitable acer and a good sized pot. They don't like windy places, and prefer dappled shade and shelter.

This is the only way I can have one in my garden and it is planted just as Spritzhenry says.
