would probably have to be a large container (20 gallon/48" box???) as the bark feature becomes most impressive on a significant sized trunk (3" diameter or so???). as for hardiness, it apparently grows well in central and south florida (might google "e. deglupta florida" and see what comes up). FWIW, zone maps are often more confusing than anything else---what kind of exotic and native plants do WELL in your area---a list of those might help both of us get at least a "feel" on the possibilities for growing other stuff.
