My friend had another friend attempt a revamp of her garden. She now has an Agonis Flexuosa Pink Flamingo in a pot – perhaps 55-60cm in diameter. The pot is out in the garden, in the open, and the tree already about 2m high. Is this plant a suitable container plant? The garden is only small so replanting out of the container is not an option.
Many thanks.

I would keep it in a container Denize. My experience with this plant is not good. While it is very pretty, it is not very hardy at all. Change nothing. don
