Epiphyllum are epiphytic cacti as their name suggests. Some call them orchid cactus due to their large bright blooms and growth habit. Epiphytic plants grow on other plants, not in a parasitic fashion but as hosts. They are not cold hardy and generally can be found only as houseplants or greenhouse specimens.

Ipomoea batatas 'Kumara ’
An Heirloom variety thought to originate in Polynesia, though the variety is also to be found throughout New Zealand. Tubers tend to be as large as sweet potatoes, with red skin and ivory flesh heavily marbled throughout in violet. This colour intensifies upon cooking. Especially creamy, Kumara is superb either mashed or baked. Contains high levels of Anthocyanins which has been studied for it's benefits with Alzheimer's Disease though it is best to research this or speak with an expert. Leaves are small and emerald-green running from dark purple petioles, and can be eaten as a substitute for any leafy green, such as Kale or Spinach either fresh or steamed. The shoot tips are especially tender.
