Perfect plants for pots and containers
Sweet Potato Vine
Sweet Potato Vine grows easily from seed. The variety 'Blackie' is a dark maroon to black colour and 'Margarita' has lime green and chartreuse leaves, which make a fantastic contrast when placed beside one another.
Cannas and banana trees both do well in containers and provide a lush tropical look. Try mixing the dwarf red banana with a 'Margarita' vine and shorter red cannas and you will have a stunning arrangement.
Fucshias do well in containers but need more water than other plants, and prefer a shady position to sun.
