Description

Ace of Spades Sweet Potato Vine (Ipomoea) has spade-shaped leaves that are dark purple to almost black. When the leaves start to sprout they are a light green and then become darker as they develop.

Environment

Grow in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Provide full sun to part shade and consistent moisture. Shelter from cold, drying winds

Landscape Uses

Perfect for containers, as a filler or as ground cover.

As a houseplant, this plant will do best if you allow it to go dry in between waterings, but if left dry for too long, the leaves will wilt. Check the soil with your finger to ascertain how moist it is. If it feels damp to the touch, then wait a while before watering it.

Ipomoeas need bright sunlight to retain their spectacular colour. Keep it in moderately fertile and well drained soil. You can prune them in summers. Fertilise them once a month in the growing season but don’t fertilise it during winters.

They also make for beautiful climbers for which you can provide them some support.
