Structure plants such as the sweet potato are quite a trend. They are easy to care with a robust habit and provide, in combination with flowering plants, chic colour touches. With its overhanging growth, the colourful leaf tendrils swirl around their partners and are particularly suitable for window boxes and hanging baskets. 'Deep Purple', with its purple black, narrow leaves is a real eye-catcher, as a single plant in a decorative pot or an attraction on balconies or patios.
