Details

Ipomea batatas 'Solar Power Black' has deeply dissected foliage that gives a new look to Sweet Potato Vine. Ideal as an annual ground cover or cascading from planters or window boxes. Very vigorous in sunny locations, slower growing in shade. Very similar to 'Illusion Midnight'. Loves the sun, but tolerates shade (won't get as big in the shade).
