About This Plant

Sun or partial shade. Deciduous with lobed leaves and white flowers that look resemble hibiscus or morning glory. Alamo Vine is easily grown from the previous year’s seed and spreads freely with a twining habit; it’ll easily cover a fenceline with no additional irrigation. In South America, the vine’s tubers were boiled and eaten like sweet potatoes during periods of scarcity.

Maintenance

Fast growing in sun, especially in rainy years; grows wild during warm weather. It will freeze back to the roots in winter. Cut back as needed in winter or summer.
