Ipomoea (Sweet Potato Vine)  i-po-MEE-ah

Proven Winners® Sweet Caroline Red Hawk™:  Sweet Caroline Red Hawk Ipomoea is an ornamental sweet potato vine. It has dramatic red foliage that draws the eye immediately. Don’t mistake this plant for the sweet potatoes you buy at the store. They all have a common ancestor, so eating the tuber won’t make you sick, but it won’t taste good, either. Sweet Caroline Red Hawk Ipomoea is heat tolerant. It will spread out as a ground cover when it is hot and humid. Cooler weather and lower humidity will encourage it to stay compact. It works as a groundcover, container plant, border, or a mass planting. In a container, this trailing plant can overwhelm the other plants in the container, so you may have to prune it back to save its neighbors.
