Plume poppy or Macleaya Cordata—-can I grow it in a very large planter?

Please forgive what may be a dopey question but I am a new gardener.  My cousin has gifted me with two plume poppy plants which I am very excited about. Alas, the best space for them is rather near the house and we are painting the house this summer. I’m afraid if I put them where I want them, the  painters will likely destroy them.
 Can I grow them in a large planter for this season and move them next year?

    You probably don't need two though!  It tends to spread quickly in my experience.

    think very carefully before planting it in the garden. It can be invasive
