This is gorgeous! Looks like some black sweet potato vine and Heliotrope? I've always put Heliotrope in full sun before and it rarely looks good. Doesn't look like this pot is in full sun at all. Interesting!

Tiffany, I also love heliotrope and my daughter always buys some for the containers that are hers on the deck. Our luck isnt always good either.
That container is in part shade with early morning to noon sun.
I also love Osteospermum and didnt realize they like cooler weather. I thing the helios do too. This image was taken in August after the hottest part of the summer.

This is a better view of the heliotrope.

That's fantastic! I'm going to try that again & NOT put it in full, all day sun. TY for the awesome pics & helpful info.
