A perennial climbing vine native to China. The edible tubers can be eaten raw after briefly soaking in vinegar, it is starchy and bland in flavour. It is cold hardy and its weedy habit needs to be considered when planting to prevent it spreading into bushland. The cinnamon scented flowers give it its alternative name, cinnamon vine.
