Description
 
Large Band Pot
Vigorous vine with tubular orange flowers flaring yellow in late fall. If you frost early then plant against a wall or just grow it to eat but it blooms well in Seattle. Tasty flowers and edible tubers which are eaten like potatoes by folks in the Andes and increasingly here. This differs from the other tuberosum we offer by having flowers with more of a flared shape and the tuber color is different. Mulch inwinter if very cold. We came by this variety by purchasing it as 'Ken Aslet'. "Ken Aslet' flowers in midsummer while the rest of the tuberosum types bloom in late fall. If you buy a 'Ken Aslet' around here anyway, this is what you'll get most likely. Fortunately we have the true one finally thanks to rare plant geek Bob Barca so that will be available in the future.
