Description

Another pretty perennial edible groundcover, this sweet potato was bred for the purple leaves and does not produce good-sized tubers. However, the leaves are edible and a spinach substitute. It looks great and fills the space under trees. Sweet potato ‘purple raven’ is easy to grow and happy i sun or part-shade. It’s probably not drought-hardy.

Sweet potatoes are not frost-hardy, you could maybe take cuttings in autumn and overwinter them in a jar of water for next spring.

All sweet potatoes are eaten by kangaroos.
