Potatoe Vine

Alright, I will continue with some annuals that I think are valuable in your garden. I am a big fan of Potatoe Vine...ipomea vine...what have you. This annual decorative vine grows and spreads quite rapidly in your flower bed or containers. It comes in a variety of attractive colors that enhance the "canvas" of your garden if you will: purple, lime green/maroon, and lime green. I like to combine this vine with Lantana or marigolds for a nice variety of orange, red, yellow, and purple. I can't tell you how attractive this arrangement is. It is also a big hummingbird favorite. Add a little purple fountain grass and you are on your way.
