Wild Yam, American–Four-Leaf Yam (Dioscorea quaternata) potted plant, organic

Family:  Yam (Dioscoraceae)

Hardy to zones to  6 to 9

(Fourleaf Yam) Native to Appalachia and hardy to 0 degrees F. Vining herbaceous perennial with thick stems and heavy, knuckled roots. In many cases this plant can be found in the deep forest, where it can make a sturdy, upright and self-supporting plant showing only a single whorl of four leaves.  One can also find Dioscorea quaternata living at the edge of the forest, where the increased availability of light encourages it to vine up into the overstory.  Traditional usage (TWM): antispasmodic for smooth tissues; stomach, bowel or menstrual cramps. This plant is highly adaptable to most shade gardens in the temperate US. Trellis.   Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart.
