My Mother grew them, she called them top ground potato. It is a fast growing vine with heart shaped leaves that grows the potatoes on the vine instead of the in the ground, some get as big as a softball.. It is a old Southern pass a long plant.|

|It is valuable to know the botanical name.
It could be Ipomoea lobata?

|Hello again, Itre!
It sounds like it could be
Brazilian Firecracker Vine (Manettia cordifolia)
It's another lovely hummingbird plant.

|Hi ltre and welcome to ATP! Where are you from?
I'm thinking you might have Manettia luteorubra
Candy Corn Vine (Manettia luteorubra)
As to the Potato Vine, it's probably Dioscorea bulbifera.
Air Potato (Dioscorea bulbifera)
Be careful with that one though - even tho it's generally a Zone 9 plant, it can survive a Zone 8 Winter and can get out of hand easily.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
