DO NOT GET A MEYER LEMON TREE or IMPROVED MEYER LEMON TREE.  They are very hard to grow as container trees.  Onegreenworld.com uses the best dwarfing rootstock of anyone.  Harvey lemon trees can go down into the Teens-F.  Four season citrus has a good choice of lemon trees.  https://www.fourwindsgrowers.com/collections/citrus-trees/products/copy-of-lisbon-lemon?variant=3756592431117

If your citrus trees have fresh growth they need to stay frost free and above 32F and the fruit is destroyed below 28F.  My trees seem to do fine with 8 houres of daylight rain or shine.
