I would like to plant a forest pansy redbud in a raised bed (3' high/2' wide/9' long). Will I have a problem with the roots effecting the wall?

Forest Pansy is Cercis canadensis, the Eastern Redbud. It's the fastest growing of the redbuds, with the potential to reach 25'-35' tall with equal width. For this reason, I wouldn't recommend keeping it in such a shallow planter for any length of time. If the roots are confined for too long, your redbud won't have the reserves to produce its lovely spring flowers.
