Leaf shape looks softer than other, split leaf variety of dark sweet potato. The shades in each leaf vary as the sunlight hits it so dark, subtle multi-colored effect makes it a versatile mixer with color you choose. In tall, stone or metal urns, flowing or clipped to be fuller, it appears strikingly modern planted alone. The traditional decorator mix of black, white & one color is reliable using this plant as the black! Beautiful mixed with fall shades of coral, purples, yellows to last on into autumn.
