EDIBLE, FRAGRANT, NATIVE , and a NECTAR SOURCE. Wow! That’s a lot!

Attractive twining vine with fragrant flowers in summer. Almost every part of this native vine is edible including shoots, flowers, seeds in pods, and bulb-like tubers that grow on the roots. The mild-tasting tubers are a good source of protein and provide excellent health benefits. Allow to climb and drape over fences, pergolas, and rock walls or scramble across the ground. For harvesting the tubers, grow in loose soil or containers. Enjoy!

Full-part sun. Height 15–20’. Zones 4–8. Native.
