"Purple Yam" (although technically a "Sweet Potato" and not even related to the yam gang) Hawaiian clone with purple fleshed tubers (said to be at their most yummy when prepared with your deep pit roast pig); very ornately cut clean-green cookie cutter somewhat palmate foliage on self branching meandering stems. Amazingly popular! Certainly a case of having your 'tater cake and eating it too. We are impressed that this is the most ordered cultivar during some past seasons. Hawaiian cookouts seem to be on the increase. Or perhaps plantsmen simply like to eat their bedding or urn designs after enjoying the summer foliar display?
|Cultural Code||TGH HP|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
