Alamo Vine


Merremia dissecta.

Sun or partial shade. Deciduous, with lobed leaves and white flowers that look like hibiscus or morning glory. Alamo Vine is quickly grown from the previous year’s seed and spreads freely with a twining habit; it’ll soon cover a fenceline with no additional irrigation.

In South America, the vine’s tubers were boiled and eaten like sweet potatoes during scarcity.

Fast-growing in the sun, especially in rainy years. It grows gangbusters during warm weather but freezes back to the roots in winter. Cut back as needed in winter or summer.

Spread: 8’-14’’
Bloom: May-October
Light: Full Sun, Part Shade
Water: Low, Moderate
Zone: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
