Good Morning Ford3728!
I was reading your thread on the "Ornamental Yam" you posted in October....sorry I'm a new subscriber and I'm enjoying reading all the threads...so anyway, I wondered...is your "Ornamental Yam" in the same family as the "Ornamental Sweet Potato" vine that grows so beatiful here in Texas?

Another question? I had 2 sweet potatoes that ended up shooting sprouts before I got to use them...will these eventually turn into "Ornamental Sweet Potato's" or Ornamental Yams? just wondering....what would happen if I let them continue growing and would they produce like the others...???

Thanks,
Rose in Texas
