Hey Root, I think CC has wandered off. LOL Do you mean the green plant with the white edges? I think it is Abutilon. It looks like one I had last year called 'Evolution'. I believe it is in the pdb.

Hi, Crestedchik. That is a beautiful pot. I am amazed at how much you have in it! What is that delicate silvery vine in the lower right of the picture? Is it dichondra argentea? I recently saw a plant like it on a garden tour and it was just gorgeous. The lady couldn't remember the name of the plant but a gardening friend suggested that it might be dichondra. If it is, can you give me some information about it? Is it an annual where you are? Do you know if it can be wintered over indoors? Thanks!

yes ,its dichondra argentea,I bought a 6 pack of them and stuck some here and there in most of my hanging pots and some in the containers.
Its my first year for them so I have no clue how hardy they are,and since this whole container is tropicals it will all come in the GH for the winter,at the end of next month...scarey thought
