Among the most popular container-garden plants, sweet potato vine is a vigorous grower that you can count on to make a big impact. Its colorful foliage, in shades of chartreuse or purple, accents just about any other plant. Grow a few together in a large pot, and they make a big impact all on their own.

Sweet potato vines do best during the warm days of summer and prefer moist, well-drained soil. They thrive in sun or shade.
