This vine-ground over is planted everywhere in Oklahoma. (Except in my garden)
I haven't seen it at any nurseries.
What's the name of it?

This other plant looks similar just a different color, I'm guessing that they are in the same family.

Yep, I agree Sweet Potato vine. Lots of folks plant this as an ornamental. There are regular green ones, lime green, dark/almost black, variegated, and probably more. Oh, and the lacy-leaf one is another pretty one.

Look in the ATP database under 'Ipomoea batatas' to see all the different types.

LOVE me some Sweet Potato vine! Thumbs up I have it in hanging pots but the neighbo-rs have the bright lime g-reen one in a flower bed. I love the b-right green color. I have a variegated, t-ri-color variety. It was that way when I bought it. But I can't seem to keep the pretty var-igation.
