Such unique and darling accents, the Potato Vine (Solanum jasminoides) is a highly attractive, rambling vining plant related to edible Potatoes! Don't put these next to the pork chops though, because these ornamentals are better used in the garden and in pots around your seating areas. Climbing with encouragement, sprawling and spilling, you'll enjoy a world of versatile uses in the garden! In warm regions, these remain semi-evergreen and form drifts of star-shaped flowers!

Semi-evergreen vines, also known as Potato Climber or Jasmine Nightshade, are great at rambling and spilling, or even climbing over anything they're trained on throughout the warmest parts of the growing season. Featuring drifts of white stars with darling yellow centers, these are fragrant alternatives to Jasmine and bloom throughout the summer months into autumn. Pollinators adore these blooms as much as you will, both outdoors and in indoor vases and bouquets!

This Nightshade family relative is hardy year-round in USDA growing zones 9-11 where it's considered a broadleaf evergreen. Reaching an impressive 20-25 feet in length/height and spreading to 10-15 feet in width, these are versatile plants. Highly adaptable and low-water usage plants once established you'll enjoy the fragrance, beauty and carefree nature these plants provide!

Planting and Application:

Ideal for training on a structure, trellis or other feature for shade, or readily covering chainlink and wood fences or walls to conceal an eyesore! In the landscape and the container garden on your porch, these are easily trained up an obelisk or grown on lattice for height and color anywhere! In fact, when not given anything to grow in, Potato Vines become lovely groundcover and spread to fill the bare ground throughout open areas in a polite and ornamental manner!

Ornamental Potato Vine can be used as shrubby form spreading plants and trained as bushes in many climates. Northern growers can enjoy these foliage plants in containers, while gardeners in warmer climates can use these plants as semi-evergreen accents year-round. Tropical climates use these lovely plants around in Rock Gardens, around pools and porches or for climbing up Palm Tree trunks to accent their bare stems!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Potato Vines tolerate full sun and partial shade throughout warm growing zones, and bright sunlight on porches and indoors if brought in for the winter. Drought tolerant and xeric once established, these low-water usage plants are ideal for arid and hot landscapes. Because these plants are in the Nightshade family, they do contain toxins that can irritate skin and should not be ingested. Wear gloves and protective clothing when handling and pruning - which should be performed after the plants are done flowering when needed.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Adaptable to Most Well-Drained Soils
  • Low Moisture Once Established
  • Prune After Flowering - Fast Growing!
  • Wear Protective Clothing When Handling

Starry white blooms and glossy semi-evergreen broadleaf climbers, the elegant and fragrant Potato Vine will become your tropical landscape's new favorite plant! Order yours today at NatureHills.com!
