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.
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.
