Hi Soolar,a few years ago i planted a p/f in a good big heavy terracotta pot about a couple of years later or so it had escaped the bottom of  the pot and went into the worst soil/rubble in the garden and spread over 30 feet on an iron fence it was stunning ,i hardly ever watered it,strange plants Passions and a good pot is the way.

Ps I had to saw it down when when it became just unmanageable, i have one now and i keep it a reasonable size in a Pot .i really dont know whats wrong with Santys  Good Luck,
