I got one this year (a blue one) mainly b/c it was blue and a rose bed always needs blue. Well, the thing has grown like gang busters! Lots of flowers. I really like it, but not where it is. I didn't know it would get so big. Can I move it? If so, when? Or is it gonna bit the dust this winter?

I have one in the ground. It gets cut back each year, but has come back for two years. I live in B'ham I got a big gallon pot from Jan at the swap meet. It has stayed about the same size.
