Arborvitae is a common and good choice for containers. Depending on your location and the severity of your winters, I would treat it as if it's in one growing zone lower than yours. Plants in containers experience weather more like zones one lower because they do not have as much protection from the cold for the roots as plants in the ground. Therefore, you may want to consider wrapping the container with burlap and place it near the home, if possible, to provide additional protection/shelter.
