I'm pretty sure I grew Santa Barbara one year in a container, but it has been so long ago, I don't remember how it did. Love the flowers.

Love this plant. It starts blooming in Oct. here and blooms for several months weather permitting. We prune it to bare ground when it looks shabby around midwinter and unearth the perimiter growth to keep the spread in check. As it grows to bloom size it is a very goodlooking plant with fuzzywhite stems and dark green leaves. Always reliable with little watering. I tip my hat to you.
