IPOMOEA, Patio Lime

Ipomoea batatas

Patio Lime is a full, graceful, cascading annual foliage plant with outstanding, bright chartreuse heart-shaped leaves.  The trailing stems and fluorescent green foliage provide a stunning contrast in hanging baskets, pots, window boxes, or patio planters.  Patio Lime can be planted as a ground cover to sprawl amongst other plants such as marigolds, coleus, and zinnias in the garden bed. This pretty but vigorous sweet potato vine can be trained to climb on a trellis. They love the sun, heat, and well-drained soil.
