Stock Number: 55564
Availability: In Stock
Family: Convolvulaceae
Cultural Code: CGH HH what's this?

Remarkable slate green sharply lobed "Sweet Potato" leaves with bright pink margins setting to rosy cream. An amazingly beautiful cultivar initially shared with us by Doug Ruhren who had inherited it from Yinger's Asian peregrinations; and indeed, under the original clone name of 'Tricolor' it was a 1980s introduction in the nurseries and gardens of India--where it is pictured in publications from India printed and published in the 1920s.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
