Chartreuse-leaved selection of the common sweet potato. This is a fabulous ornamental, used as a ground cover in Mediterranean to Tropical climate. Leaves are truly different, because of their yellowish, healthy colour. It is evergreen and can stand a reasonable amount of neglect.

It only takes light frosts but it can be grow as an annual in colder climates and restarted from cuttings each spring. This variety is getting more and more popular in many countries.

We offer a pack consisting of 4 stout cuttings, often rooted, sometimes not. They will be wrapped in moist sphagnum. It is VERY easy to root, then plant it in the ground in warm weather and it will soon cover many square meters.
