You could plant in a container but a lilac is a fast growing tree. The container could be a starter home for it but would not recommend one to stay in it. My lilac was about two feet tall when we got it about 6 years ago and now is over 8 foot tall and completely covers a corner of the yard. I do trim around the bottom for mowing.

You could try Syringa meyeri "Palibin". It is slow growing and its final height is not as tall as some other varieties.
