(Dioscorea batatas) Cinnamon scented flowers and heart shaped leaves adorn this vigorous deciduous vine. In the mountains of northern China it produces very large, highly prized, white fleshed tubers with a nutty potato flavor. While the top dies back each November, the tubers can be left in the ground for several years to keep growing. One gallon pot. This plant is self fertile and grows in USDA Zones 4-8.

Size: 1 Gallon Pot


Ask a Question
  • Does it like some shade? Our “full sun” is brutal (we’re transitioning from semi-arid steppe to full-on arid). Also, does it require himidity?

    Shan Yao (Chinese Hardy Yam Vine) requires full to partial sun, loamy loose soils, and moderate moisture. It is much like a sweet potato, though superior in nutrition and some believe flavor.

Cinnamon vine

Plant arrived during a time that was still below freezing. The plant was well wrapped and looked in great health. The vine was about 2 feet long when it arrives, however about 4 inch of rip froze. I trimmed it down to the the next leaf segment. It has since grown a ton and am so happy with the purchase. This year is my first year ordering plants from Braintree and I am so happy with the quality of all the plants purchased.
