Chinese Wild Yam seed/ Dioscorea batatas
This is an easy to grow perennial vine that will cover a trellis or arbor in no time with its heart shaped shiny leaves. It produces aerial tubers in the fall as well as larger tubers under the ground. I like it for its fast growing ability to cover an arbor to create shade. In Biodynamic uses, it is used to bring in light and is made into homeopathic remedies. It is also called Dioscorea Batatus. It grows well in hot, humid climates.
