You're right, Linda -- hee hee -- you have convinced me  to plant
some of the ornamental sweet potatoes next summer in the ground...
Bet it would make a handsome total ground cover, in the right place.
Yes, its proper name is ipomoea batatas 'Blacky'.  Not being 
expensive, I wish more people would look for it to add interest and
drapability to hanging pots. The leaves are the color of oxalis, a 
kind of oxblood -- very handsome!
