montania are best in the ground as they grow fast and spread they are not for the pot really your better with a smaller variety.Keep well watered every day for the first year and when the growing season starts ,they do not like being dry.they need feeding and pruned in the right season .Montainia s are hardy if planted in the ground and can be pruned hard if they over take there plot.
