can a h. x intermedia"rochester' (witch hazel) grow in a large 2.5 x 2.5 pot
I guess the pot is about 40 gallons. I presently have a wisteria topiary which is about 16 years and appears to be dying. So I am looking for a replacement plant. Thought the Witch Hazel would be interesting because it blooms in the winter.
A Witch Hazel should do fine in a pot that size. A larger pot would be more ideal, but if you got the open pot, why not pick a lovely tree. They are sturdy plants, I have seen many Witch Hazels grow robustly in environments that I consider hostile.
