(Sweet Potato Vine) Ipomoea ‘Margarita’ is a vigorous, trailing, Sweet Potato Vine with a mounding growth habit. The foliage is a brilliant chartreuse and will add a pop of color to your combination planters, window boxes, hanging baskets and even your landscape borders, as ‘Margarita’ makes a great groundcover. ‘Margarita’ grows 6-10 inches high with a spread of 48-60 inches and can trail up to 72 inches. Even though this Sweet Potato Vine is a robust grower, it is easily trimmed to keep it in bounds. Place ‘Margarita’ in full sun to part shade and watch it grow! You will notice the color of Ipomoea ‘Margarita’ will be brighter in full sun locations, and a bit more subdued in part shade.
