I know everyone in the deep south hates this plant since it's so invasive but in North Texas it always dies in the winter after the first frost or freeze. Does anyone have any of the tubulars they would be willing to share? thanks

Air Potatoes

I had never heard of Air Potatoes so I searched the net to see if there was any info availiable.

Here is what I found:

http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/node/133

It said that they are an invasive plant that will take over other plants even climbing into tree tops. They also talk about the fruit of another type being toxic.

I didn't read all of the article since I have no desire to have a vine take over my garden.

It doesn't take over anything

It doesn't take over anything in North Texas or Oklahoma. If you don't have any to offer, thanks but no thanks! I have already done my research on this vine.
