In 2015 I dug it up and put it in an Anderson Flat:

And let it grow basically wild for the next 2 years. It got to about 8' tall:

And after a good haircut:

It's back to 10" tall, and sporting a 4" base. Check back in another 2 years!

Why did you move it to a grow box to let it grow wild (instead of keeping it in the ground for those two years?

We moved in July ‘15, so I dug it up a few months earlier in March, and planted it in the Anderson flat. We don’t really have a great place to grow anything out in the ground in this yard, so I let the roots escape into the ground. The result isn’t much slower ground-growing and has the benefit of keeping some roots in close to the trunk.
