can cigar plant and gentiana go in containers?
Hi. I have about 12 half pots up on the fence in which my nasturtium seeds fried. So I have a wall of soil and was thinking of a nice trailing periennial. I have a nice blue Gentiana or a Cigar Plants (Cuphea ignea). Any idea how to propagate these? I am not sure if you can just make cuttings and pop them in water til they root. It seems that although both of these like to spread, they all come from one plant with no babies nearby.
Any help offered would be great! Also, do you think they will be fine as periennials over winter in zone 6a in the pots or should I plant them in the ground and dig them up next Spring?
