    Definitely. Not sure of the varieties, but mine have done very well in pots.

    I presume you mean Japanese Maples? not the full size trees?

    If so, they're all good if the pots are big enough, but don't go mad and put a small specimen in a huge pot. With red brick I'd plant one of the variegated maples . There are so many new varieties I a bit out of touch. 

    I'm sure you could google " japanese maple nursery" or something like that and find a good catalogue to give you some ideas.

    Just found this one, but I've never dealt with them, but might be worth a look to see the different types.
