I'm looking for a black sweet potato vine. I had one a couple years back but bad weather got my green house and I lost it, as well as a few other plants I had in there. But looking for this to go in a large container pot out by the end of my drive, can anyone help?

would also love some black elephant ear tubers if anyone has any?

I have some sweet potatoe vines from last year. They are green but I'm curious about how the "black" sweet potatoe vines were originated. I have never seen them no heard of them.

nori, the purple is the black. some varieties of it are deep enough to appear almost black!
