Sweet Potato, Lilac Beauty (5 PLANTS) SHIPS PROMPT
Lilac - A gorgeous lilac purple sweet potato with gourmet flavor. This Asian-type sweet potato has a dry, firm texture that we love. Like most Asian types, the flesh is medium low in sweetness, but does not skimp in flavor -- it is one of the best purple varieties we’ve found. While it is similar in color to the Okinawan purple sweet potato, it is noted to be more productive in northern climates. Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. All plants will ship prompt as available. Please make sure you are ready for your order in your zone as these young, tender plants generally have no resistance to cold.
Plant Care Instructions:
Plants cannot tolerate a hard freeze; however, northern growers can grow them in hanging baskets and bring them indoors in the winter or grow them outdoors simply for their gorgeous flowers (but no fruit). Plant outdoors after chance of frost has passed. Choose a sunny site with well-drained soil. Trellis or stake plants to keep them from taking over the garden, as they will otherwise grow into a tangled mess! Prune vines to create airflow and to promote fruiting. WARNING: PLANTS ARE VERY YOUNG AND TENDER. DO NOT PUT THEM OUTSIDE UNTIL ALL DANGER OF FROST HAS PASSED.
