Affiliates are part of my income. I may receive some compensation from the links and ads in this page if you make a purchase. There that’s done.

Lime Green, Dark Purple, Pink, White and Green Variegated and Classic Green Sweet Potato Vines.
These are the colors I currently curate in planters and in the ground. I take cuttings from each and root in water then put into planters in the greenhouse so they are ready to go out at Spring time.

 

 

Pretty fade resistance purple leaves.
Pretty fade resistance purple leaves. If left alone over the summer will often produce round shaped edible sweet potatoes in the roots. In late fall pull up the whole plant root system (traumatic I know). Pick off the potatoes, take the long or short stems of the vine and re root in water to plant in the soil next spring.
Not often seen, the lovely light purple bloom of the purple leafed sweet potato.

Natural green leaves of a standard eating type sweet potato vine. Climbing a 4 foot fence, rooted in a bucket for greenhouse care. Originally a left over uncooked sweet potato from Christmas 2014.

Easy to grow… A six to twelve inch end cutting will root quickly in simple water in a cup, jar, or glass on a window seal. Make sure it doesn’t dry out by keeping at least two inches of water over the bottom of the stem.

One of the happiest colors of green I can find.
