Yes it's a sweet potato, but not to eat. As long as you don't break off the eyes it will make a new blackie @ukjohonny @jeatacake @terrimclaughlin

I can't help, sorry Terri. I've no experience of growing sweet potatoes. Not much with regular spuds either! 😀

@ShelleySynder I have these in that pretty lime color too. Trying to make a bunch right now. They root real easy. Love those new flowers you found the red/pink ones😊💕

@cyndi I know one day I will get one of these to you I hate promising because as we all know.....life sometimes throws us a surprise but it’ll pass. Your yard is probably one of the prettiest over there!!!! Maybe your hard work will encourage one of your neighbors to start planting 🤗🤗🤗👍🏻😊💕

@kimguy These are alittle different I hope it keeps flowering. Jeatacake says they make sweet potatoes like you grow potatoes here but when I’ve dug these up they have something more like rhizomes unless these are ornamental ones. Have a good one Ohio👍🏻👍🏻🤗😊💕

I've grown potato vine in past years, they've grown big and lush but I've never had them flower.

@gjones do you think the flower is the potato? You know like there’s litter yellow flower before the tomato little orange flower before the squash?? It’s just potatoes are buried and grow underground it’s amazing you can take a small potato and cut it into quarters bury them a few inches or so deep and by fall (at least here in San Antonio) you’ll have a nice clump if potatoes 😊💕
