Sweet Caroline, Sweet Heart, Purple Gigantico.

"Wonderful trailing selection with brightly colored foliage. Provides dramtic color to containers and baskets.
Sun to Part shade
Medium water
6-8" tall
15 - 18 " wide

I went outside and got the tag out of the pot and that's what it says:)

I cut a peice of it off to bring inside to put into a vase with some other flowers I had cut. It now has roots on it in the it is obviously easy to grow.
I'm going to bring this pot inside...heaven only knows where in the heck I'm going to sit it...Not a clue right now. Not even sure I can as I don't have room,,,...but I'd like to try and winter it over. I wonder if it would do well in a hanging basket...though I have 7 hanging baskets in here now and not another ceiling space

This 4 0' clock came out late. My other ones are almost done blooming and this one is just starting.

A neighbor of mine has them in a hanging basket by the front door, so should do fine in a basket...of course then it is about the space, isn't it?

I never put them in a hanging basket as they grow and don't hang down but I suppose that doesn't matter. These really dark pink ones have a bit more smell to them, but you still have to stick your nose right in them
