Characteristics and uses:
The Potato Vine ‘Album’ is a quick growing climber which bears a superb blossom from June to November. Its star-shaped, pure white flowers appear in panicled cymes. Plan for a large enough space as the Potato Vine can rapidly become invasive!
The Potato Vine is drought resistant. An occasional watering will suffice, which makes it a good candidate for absent-minded persons…. to grow in planters. Finally, a pruning at the end of winter to suppress dead wood is all that's needed.
