Forgive my delayed response Christen!

The gorgeous Ipomoea, otherwise known as Sweet Potato Vine makes a beautiful ornamental draping accent for any potted arrangment. It comes in dramatic purple or vibrant chartreuse color. It is "A Real Simple magazine Top 10 goofproof Plant"
Ipomoea, loves the heat and thrives vigorously in the deep south. They take little maintenance, are heat tolerant, deadheading is unnecessary and can also be used as an annual ground cover.
Trim to your personal preference. In winter, you can cut the ornamental beauty full back and during the first flush of spring, you will be thrilled with the emergence of your elegant friend once more.

The other potted arrangement has Evolvulus glomeratus, Blue Daze as a trailing evergreen perennial white fine haired foliage. Blue Daze that grows in full sun to part shade in zones 8-11. It is salt tolerant, prefers and thrives in well drained, rich soil. Blue Daze needs fertilizing 4-6 times a year. I always use Colorstar for all on my blooming plant material.

Thank you for following!
