I have two that are bonsai, so yes, they are in very shallow, small pots. I have had some in pots for a few years before they got too big and went into the garden. They seem to love it here and are cheap, so we have 8 of them in all.

You should mention your climate/USDA Hardiness zone. In a pot, they can suffer damage in winter if it stays well below freezing for more than a few days, so the pot should be mulched. Watch also to make sure they don't get root bound, it will prevent the water from draining, and they can get root rot.
If you do transplant to a bigger pot, go only 1-2" bigger, and do it in late winter before the buds start to swell.

Good or bad experience? Many years ago I tried to grow a Japanese maple in a pot. I killed it.
