A Japanese maple or a dwarf Alberta spruce would do very well in a container with morning sun. These trees both tend to grow very slowly. Smaller varieties of crabapple as well as ornamental pears would also do well in containers and would provide a spring floral display, but would outgrow the container more quickly. The larger the container you use, the better their chances for being healthy and surviving more than a year.
