|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.

|Sweet potato vine?|

|Yep, 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.

I always look in the "Periannals" section at nurseries, I'll have to look somewhere else for that!

|LOVE me some Sweet Potato vine! 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.|
