Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine is the perfect plant for eye-catching container arrangements. With uniform heart-shaped leaves in intense shades of bronze and red, this Ipomoea hybrid can add a vibrant, tropical look to your garden and home. Growing just 6-15 inches tall, this pretty annual has a mounded, trailing habit. Its trailing, vine-like stems can grow up to 20-36 inches long. 

Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine is a must-have spiller plant for containers. It looks great when planted among other colorful sweet potato vines, and its foliage complements flowering annuals and perennials. Grow this plant at the front of mixed borders for an annual ground cover with attractive foliage. This sweet potato vine is also an excellent choice for hanging baskets, especially when planted with other flowering spillers. 

Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine Care

Plant Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine in full to partial sun. While it can grow in more shady areas, its foliage color is intensified by sunlight. This plant loves warm, humid conditions. Grow it in moist, well-drained, and slightly acidic soil. Water your sweet potato vine often, but do not allow the soil to get soggy. Sweet potato vines are not heavy feeders, but they can benefit from an application of slow-release fertilizer per label instructions. If this annual becomes too vigorous, snip back some of the foliage to prevent it from overwhelming neighboring plants. 

Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine is a perennial in zones 11 but can be grown year-round as a houseplant in cooler zones. Grow this sweet potato vine indoors by providing it with bright, indirect light. Keep it away from drafty areas or sources of hot, dry air. Water your sweet potato vine often and add humidity via frequent misting or a humidifier. 

Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine Spacing

Plant Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Mahogany™ Sweet Potato Vine 12-18 inches apart to ensure that it has plenty of room to spread without crowding out its neighbors. When growing this annual in containers, a tall, wide pot will allow space for companion plants and encourage sweet potato vine to trail down the sides of the container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
