I live in south western Az. and want to know if my sweet potatoe slips will surive the winter here. I put slips in last fall. The tops are dead but close to the ground it looks like there is some green life. I haven't checked to see if the roots are still alive. I do hope that thay are. The sweet potatoes do seem to like the summer heat here. I got lots of vines but few potatoes.

That's something that I'm not sure about. Frost does kill the tops, but as long as you don't have a hard freeze, the roots should resprout, but your mileage may vary.

It would be an interesting experiment to see what happens.
