Sweet potato vine

The sweet potato plant is a wonder to behold. From a little sprig, it never fails to grow into a foliage monster throughout the summer. The tubers that they grow are not edible, but look very similar to the ones that we eat. A hard frost is sure to come soon, and these beautiful chartreuse leaves will turn black and die off.
