Sandra,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

If the pot is very large, say 5-10 gallons in size that variety could be container grown. Red Ruffles has a low-growing, spreading habit reaching 2?-3? tall. The larger the container the less prone it would be to drying out rapidly making care much easier and success less risky.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
