|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.
