Can i plant a boxwood in its small pot in the ground to keep it small?

On plant boxwood winter gem



I kept a box in a pot for about a year and it was not very happy. I put it in the garden and it is doing much better. It is a small tree and does not grow very fast, and can be trimmed.

Wouldn't recommend it, and the roots will grow out the bottom of hte pot anyway. They respond well to being trimmed, and it's quite theraputic to do so!
