Does anyone else love these sweet potato vines that you see in ornamental plantings everywhere? Mine is on its third summer (I put it in my sunroom in winter) and is still going strong. That fluorescent green just gets better and better, especially when combined with the blue red flowers. I also love the purple foliage plant that is often combined with it. What a great color plan!

I love both "Marguerite" and "Blackie," which comes back every year. Don't know why it survives the winter when "Marguerite" doesn't...

Yes, they have such a delicate look about them!

Looks like some of the pots in my yard. I haven't tried bringing mine in over winter, I've just used them as annuals. I may try to winter over one in my new sun porch this year...if I can find room after I bring in my giant Euphorbias and Aloe.

I plant those in one of my outdoor planters as a ground cover - I love them! I have to plant mine every spring though - I might try bringing them in this fall...

Cheers!
