Balkar ji and Gurcharanji:
Yes..potatoe vine...
s. jasiminoides is how I know it...
Very popular in california gardens..
even NYBG arboretum grew it for a few years in the conservatory...


never seen any fruits though inside the glass house... no appropriate
pollinators I guess....
MY QUESTION: does this plant fruit in the northern climes , and being
out in the open?
Thanks
Usha di
