There were 2 types planted, "Blackie" and "Margarita." I thought that "Blackie" was the one that produced tubers but I guess they all do. I had "Blackie last Summer and it produced a tiny tuber which I accidentally threw out when cleaning out front. I haven't completely pulled up the vine yet. I will see if it produced anything when the weather starts to kill the foliage. I was ecstatic to see a sweet potato in my sidewalk planter when I pulled up "Margarita." Here she is. Now how do I keep her viable until Spring?
I think there are more because I couldn't pull out all of it and I didn't want to chop into it. If it lives do you think I can separate them?
|Cut back creeping Jenniy, sweet potato vine, phylox, pulled 2 coleus.|
|Cutting put in water. I hope they make it till Spring.|
|After. It will look better when mums, ornamental kale, pumpkins, and more pansies are added.|
|Sorry for the blurry picture. Some pansies added. I am going to remove the coleus and sweet potato vine when I get the other plants.|
|Alabama Sunset. She was hard to see with all the other plants in the container. She was trailing down in the back. I will take a cutting of her. If she survives it will be the 3rd year I have had her.|
|Side walk Planter Before|
|After, violas added.|
