This is a Nursery about an hour away and I love going there. Can be hard not to walk away without something or a lot.

Rick, this plant looks like a yam that could be edible, so looked it up...yes, it is a yam and after processing to remove toxins it is edible. Of course I wouldn't eat it...the tuber looks way cool! Green Grin!

Yah, I do not think I would eat it. Interesting though. Mine is quite small, but he had some large specimen and they where so unique. He trades me and I do not really need anymore plants. Next spring he is bringing in a bunch of pots. Going to trade for those instead.

Hey, terrific idea! I don't need anymore plants either so I will see if this one small nursery would trade pots for my adeniums. Thanks, Rick!
