Plants in Pots & Ground

I was able to find the time to get a couple more plants potted and a small group placed into the ground.

The first was Aloe 'Pink Blush' which had been patiently waiting for its pot.  I really like the coloration along its edges and suspect its active pupping will cause it to quickly fill the container.

The second is my first attempt with any type of Sweet Potato Vine.  This variety is Ipomoea batatas 'Bright Ideas Rusty Red' which replaced a Texas Bear Grass (Nolina texana) that never really performed (its now waiting for another location).

And continuing with Sweet Potato Vines, I also put four Ipomoea batatas 'Margarita' into the ground. Hopefully they won't overwhelm the area.


  1. Love the aloe. Do you think it would survive well outside during the summer in Tulsa? Its very humid here. Btw: please post more!

    1. Main issue with aloes is too cold (freezing) and too much water (keep it dry). If extremely hot & sunny, then might need some shade (cool & sunny ain't bad - lots of areas in California grow in ground). As long it don't freeze and it's mostly dry and you don't have it out direct, intense 100+ degree sunshine - should be OK.
