Purple Yam

When I first saw the distinctive Gardenia megasperma I was then surprised at just how many grew in the woodlands. Without their showy white flower they are easily just part of a green mosaic background. The same has happened with the yam vine.
The yam Ipomoea abrupta has a very beautiful purple flower
that is impossible to miss.
Now that they are coming into bloom they are every where.
