    Such a beautiful plant. It arrived happy and healthy. So far it did not put tons of growth but that's ok, the season just started.

    Love this Ipomoea. The jet black color is outstanding coupled with other plants. It is easily pruned though it does not run wild like other potatoes vines.

    I ordered two of each color and I received all healthy large plants. They were packaged well and in great shape when they arrived. Couldn’t be happier. I will be making this purchase again next year
