The Q&A Archives: Sweet Potato Vine

Question: How do I start Sweet Potatoe Vine? I have not found seeds or plants. Does it need sun or partial shade?

Answer: You're in luck! Ornamental sweet potato vines are normally purchased as small plants which have been started from either tubers or cuttings. They do best in full sun but will tolerate a bit of shade. Burpee offers two sweet potato vines: a black leafed form and a chartreuse leafed form are pictured on p.33 of the 1999 catalog. To verify availability or to request a catalog you may wish to call Burpee at 800-888-1447.
