Proven Accents® Sweet Caroline Medusa™ Green Sweet Potato Vine | Proven Winners

Great foliage component plant in combinations; excellent heat tolerance and good vigor. This variety features a unique crown-shaped, many fingered foliage, unlike anything you've seen in sweet potato vine.  The plants are more mounded, less trailing with overlapping leaves which lends a unique and fun flavor to this new introduction. It can sub for a Boston fern basket that likes more sun and needs less water. In other words, it's easier to care for.

Ipomoeas are great additions to combination planters, but they can sometimes overwhelm less vigorous plants.
