Ipomoea batatas 'Sweet Caroline Green'

Plant these on their own in a pot or trail them round the outside of a large pot of arctotis or verbenas. That's how I always use them.

This has handsome, healthy-looking leaves in the brightest green. Plant these on their own in a pot or trail them round the outside of a large pot of arctotis or verbenas. That's how I always use them.

Heat and drought tolerant. Cut back to rejuvenate the plant in later summer.
