In training for three years now. I plan to put into a pot next spring and hopefully will be able to reduce the leaf size a bit once the tree is confined to its pot. Tree stands about 8 Inches from soil line to apex.

Man that is one slow growing tree.
I've had it for three years, but it's 10 years old right now. Morris Midget is similar to a Kingsville boxwood. They grow about an inch a year if you're lucky. The Kingsville has smaller leaves.

To me (not to be critical) the branches are a little too thick. Maybe you could grow a couple of sacrifice branches to solve that problem, or does this tree grow so slowly that this would take a lifetime?

I like the general form--very relaxed and "feminine" to me.

I agree with your assessment of the branches. At this point I had to work with what the material offered. It definitely would take quite some time to completely grow new branches. I'm hoping when the foliage fills back out that the branch size will be less dominant. We'll have to wait and see. Thanks for the input.
