Hello all,

I was hoping someone would know the answer to this since I haven't been able to find it in google. Can you plant a hedge in a container? I want to but a flowering cherry hedge but I would need to put it in a pot. Is that possible?

Can you be a bit more specific about the plant, perhaps the Latin name.
Do you want the one plant or a series of plants to create an actual hedge?

Punus Besseyi

Post  nikkablue on 2/25/2011, 8:46 am

I think it's a prunus besseyi. I don't know for sure since the sight I want to order it from doesn't say but it does say that it's winter hardey up to -40 degrees which makes me believe that it's a sand cherry hedge.

Just a quick comment, I am very wary of ordering from sites that don't list the scientific name of their plants. If I know EXACTLY what I'm ordering, I might order from a borderline site. But I've gotten the wrong plants sent out from borderline (read that as cheapest) places before. I much prefer to order from better, more reputable sites now, so I know what I'm getting and I actually get what I'm ordering.
