Can this tree be grown in a container, Bonsai maybe? I sure would love to try this.

Yes - it can easily be grown in a container, and it does make a suitable bonsai. As bonsai, the leaves can be reduced in size over time, for a more proportionate tree.

Ohhhh - if you're just in the 'looking' stages, keep an eye out for E nicholii (peppermint gum tree). I think you'll be pleased with it as a bonsai candidate.
