The attractive foliage of Ipomoea ( ip-uh-mee-uh) adds visual appeal as it trails over your mixed patio containers, window boxes, and hanging baskets.
This vigorous plant is easy to grow, but give it plenty of room, and only plant alone or in combination with other large plants (like petunias). It has excellent heat tolerance, but does not like cold weather, so don't plant until late May. At the end of the season, be sure to check for sweet potatoes growing in your containers -bake them just like regular potatoes- they're delicious!
