Want an easy plant to grow during the summer, with nice color that covers a large area and is extremely versatile? Consider the sweet potato vine. It is all of these things and more. What first caught my eye was its extremely bright and unusual lime green color.
These vines are not only found in chartreuse, but can range from yellow to purple, a purplish-black, which produces a bloom, and a bronzy-pinkish mixed-tone leaf. They spread nicely, up to 4 feet or so, and grow 10 inches to 2 feet in height. Some might feel sweet potato vines can be somewhat invasive in bedding areas, but I disagree. They can be easily nipped off where you don't want them growing, almost to the point that you can manipulate them exactly where you want them to spread.
