Iresine and Ipomoea

Iresine and Ipomoea

In my goal of looking for plants which have colorful leaves, but do not produce an over abundance of flowers, I came across these at Home Depot yesterday. The idea is to not attract too many bees around the entryway to the house, since we are all scurred of them. They are Ipomoea (sweet potato vine) and Iresine. I was thinking to plant some of these in containers on either side of the front steps. I've never grown either before and read that the Ipomoea will indeed flower. Will all of them or just the chartreuse green? Hoping that someone will share their experiences. I'm in a zone 6-7. Thanks y'all.
