It should do fine in a container but the leaves often become unattractive as the summer progresses and for this reason I grow mine in the borders. Also, they are very hungry plants and will need some organic matter in the container with them, they also seem to like a fair bit of water. I think I did'nt water the one I grew in a container enough last year and it got powdery mildew. As to not buying a big one, don't worry, they grow quite quickly. Good luck, they're great plants to have in the garden.
