One of my favorite Ornamental Sweet Potato plants is Blackie. I never knew they bloomed until this year when I bought a new Blackie, Sweet Carolina, at a local nursery. What a gorgeous bloom they have!

I've had these for years (overwintered inside) and had a bloom just once. Any tips to help get them blooming? Mine have been in the same big planter for about 7 years with a tropical honeybush....

I do keep some Bloom Booster on hand...I'll try that! (I think this planter gets skipped most of the time.)

Thanks, Linda! Thumbs up
