Hey gang, I need your help, AGAIN. Can I plant Fireball Dwarf Monarda in a container 15" across and 12" deep, if so, one or two plants per container, and IF SO, will they survive the winter in zone 6a, I've gotten a lot of conflicting information, and I'd rather go with what you say. Originally, they were going to go in the ground, but there are a lot of variables, and I'd rather wait to see what happens next year before deciding what to do with them -- they'd be too big for a container by then anyway, I'd guess. So, per usual, all advice very much appreciated. I tip my hat to you.

@luvsgrtdanes Ronnie, you're one of my butterfly gurus, and our zones practically match, do you have any ideas about this?
