I received a green-leaved euryops as a gift. I haven't any place to plant in the ground. Can I plant it in a big pot and keep it on my patio? If so, will it be okay in the pot during a Wisconsin winter?

Euryops grows in full sunshine, in well-draining soils. It will grow in a container without problem. It should be covered with yellow flowers all summer long if you keep the spent flowers trimmed off. Euryops will bloom almost year-round if taken indoors in late summer. It's a perfect indoor plant for a bright location. Water regularly and fertilize once a month during growing season with balanced liquid fertilizer. Euryops do not like temps below 50?, but will tolerate it for short periods. As long as it receives bright light and warm temperatures, and you keep the spent flowers trimmed, Euryops should bloom indoors during the winter months. Enjoy your plant!
