This variety is also known as Solanum jasminoides, and it boasts yellow and green variegation on long, pointed leaves.

Yellow Zebra Potato Vine may need assistance covering a fence or lattice, so be prepared to lend a hand and weave the vines along the support or use twine to secure the vines in place. Plant this climbing thriller in a landscape container, or use the foliage to give a patio or outdoor area some privacy.
Yellow Zebra Potato Vine Care
The Yellow Zebra Potato Vine requires partial to full sun. This plant also likes consistent water, so give the plant a drink before the soil dries out, but be careful not to overwater because this plant does not like soggy conditions. Well-draining, rich soil that has a 7.0 to 8.0 pH is ideal. Apply a water-soluble fertilizer every other week during the growing season.
Yellow Zebra Potato Vine is a fast-growing plant, so it can easily overtake an area. Cut the vines back if the plant starts to outgrow or overwhelm the space. This plant is grown as an annual in most areas, but it can be brought indoors to overwinter. Trim the vines back, place the plant in a bright spot, and water when the soil starts to dry out.
