How to start ornamental sweet potatoes

Zone 6 | lynelle added on March 24, 2015 | Answered

I spent a small fortune last year on ornamental sweet potato vines. Is it possible to start my own? A lady in line last year told me she used just plain sweet potatoes to create starts. Is that possible? I didn't think they were really the same plant. Can you give me some guidance?

Ornamental sweet potatoes and plain sweet potatoes are two different entities. You can grow your own ornamental sweet potato vines from either small rooted pieces from the eye buds of the tuber or by stem cuttings! Here is an article that will tell you how:
