Quick Overview

Dioscorea mexicana, diam. 35 cm (fresh import / bare rooted) No. 13


Dioscorea mexicana, former name Dioscorea macrostachya, is a caudiciform dioscorea having either a partly to completely above-ground dome-shaped caudex with a thick, woody outer layer up to 90 cm in diameter and 20 to 25 cm in height.
The caudex of D. mexicana is divided into regular polygonal plates, separated by deep fissures.
The vigorous annual vines which may reach 9 m long before dying back in winter, that grow up from the caudex, bear heart-shaped leaves.
Requires a lot of water during the growing season and loves shade.
Dioscorea mexicana ranges from the state of San Luis Potosí in northeastern Mexico south to Panama.

Fresh Mexico import:
When we import from Mexico the plants arrive without roots.
For a short time period we can offer these plants bare rooted, which is much easier to ship.
After that, the plants will be potted in our nursery and left there to root for at least a few months. When rooted, they will be offered as rooted plants.
