<< I am looking for suggestions on a tree/bush that doesn't get higher then 6 
and doesn't have a massive root system >>

Hi, Kate:

These are hardy Japanese maples in zone 5:

Acer palmatum 'Tsuma Beni', it means "Red Nail"...I early spring the leaf 
tips are red looking like the tips have a red nail polish on them;

Acer dissectum 'Waterfall', I have mine for 5 years & it is 3.5' high and 

Acer dissectum'Viridis';

Acer palmatum 'Peaches and Cream';

Acer palmatum 'Caperci Dwarf', a real gem at 1.5' high x 3.5' wide & the 
leaves are about 0.75" , I have this beauty for 6 years, I grow dwarf & mini 
hosta under this umbrella canopy

Acer palmatum 'Sango kaku', better known as 'Coral Bark Maple'...this one 
have for 8 years, and it's 5' high with a multistem...imagine bright coral 
red against the white snow, small apple green leaves turning to a brilliant 
yellow-orange in the fall.

I also have three dissectum red weeping Japanese maples...the oldest is 11 
years old 4' high x 6' wide.

Hope this helps you...have a great weekend
