I've been playing around with trying to design a planting plan. One possibility that looks good is a flowering almond. But I'm confused - some say it is a tree, some say it can be used as a large shrub and some even talk of using it as a container plant. Given how much they cost, I can't contemplate making a mistake and hiking it out in several years' time.

Which is it? Or is it a question of pruning/cutting it back to keep it under control? I just want something colourful that will be a large bush - maybe 3-4 foot - as a focus point.
