Comments: This selection of the potato vine produces green and creamy-white variegated foliage. The white flowers are like the regular species -- white, star-shaped with yellow centers. This vine is worthy of much greater use as an ornamental vine, but growth may need to be checked periodically to keep the vine from growing out of bounds and over adjacent shrubs. It is an excellent vine for chainlink fences because the stems of the vines can be easily threaded througout the links of the fence.
