Ipomoea batatas (Sweet Potato Vine yams vegetable – patate douce)

Ipomoea batatas - Sweet Potato Vine yams vegetable – patate douce - Commonly called sweet potato or sweet potato vine. It is a tuberous rooted tender perennial that is cultivated for its orange-fleshed edible tubers. Today, the sweet potato is a popular root vegetable that is grown in vegetable gardens. Although species plants and varieties grown as food crops have somewhat attractive green foliage, it is the more recently introduced purple-, chartreuse- and variegated-leaved cultivars that have transformed this vegetable into a popular ornamental foliage plant. If grown as a ground cover, plant stems typically mound to 9” tall but spread by trailing stems to 8-10’ wide, rooting in the ground at the nodes as they go. Leaves of the ornamental varieties are heart-shaped to palmately-lobed (to 6” long) and come in bright green, dark purple, chartreuse and variegated (green with pink or white) colors. Although species plants produce pale pink to violet trumpet-shaped flowers, ornamental varieties usually do not flower. Tubers of the ornamental varieties are edible, but are not as tasty. Family : Convolvulaceae
