Vine - Sweet Potato - Kelly Ray PP24446

Patented in 2014 by Kelly Marcum, of Marcum's Nursery, and featured on the Martha Stewart Show, this sweet potato vine's showy heart-shaped 'Ace of Spades' like foliage starts out lime green. As the foliage matures, it showcases a marbled purplish-black and vibrant lime green colors that look as if Jackson Pollock's paintbrush has been at work. Each new leaf's coloration (including its underside) remains a mystery as no two leaves are alike.
