I'd like to grow a japanese maple in a large container, max height to about 8 feet, with great color all four seasons. Any suggestions?

I have an Orangeola, mature container height is supposed to be 6-8 feet. First photo is from the week I received it in March 2011 as a 2-foot twig. The last photograph is from last month. There is no Winter color, but the other three seasons are beautiful.

If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

there are so many trees that are possible - what leaf type are you looking for?

btw - WA state would provide better fall color with orangeola than TX. mine here in the NE has nice color. although planted in the ground.

Ya, your choices are pretty wide open - there are about as many varieties as you can image. Try narrowing it down some by leaf-type and/or spring/fall color you'd like.
