I purchased a small piece from the markdown table last summer at a big box store not knowing what it was other than I liked the color of the leaves. I took cutting and brought it in over winter, Wow! Did it ever perform in my front window all winter. I again took cutting and potted them up for my summer pots and again nothing but wow. I have given cutting away and everyone loves them. The color is spectacuar and I like them better for posts than sweet potatoe vines now. The color is outstanding and easy to care for. A definate keeper,
