Hi Collectomaniac81

I couldn't perceive any reason why you can't grow D. Plum in a large container. Just upgrade the container every few years commensurate to the growth of the plant. But, eventually it will be too heavy and cumbersome to transplant as the pot becomes larger. You can always top and root prune when it comes to that point.

Happy gardening :-)

I think all three species could be successfully grown in a container, but I think D. jerseyana is best suited.

D. puriens is a much larger tree, and D. johnsonii has a broader canopy and isn't cauliflory. Additionally, in my experience these two are more likely to form suckers.

Hope this helps,

Yes I agree, D.jerseyana will fruit lower on a multi stem shrub, containers are fine.
