Spotlight Black

Spotlight Black is a truly compact ipomoea with a great fine textured leaf that fills space with good volume without the stringy nature of a vine. Excellent for containers, window boxes and hanging baskets because it does not overwhelm mixed plantings. Also recommended for landscape use without eating too much space in the beds.
