I'm over here in zone 7b and I'm growing Stachys Affinis ("Chinese Artichoke") like crazy in some Vegepods, but you know what? The actual yield is terrible.
I hear Stachys Floridana is bigger, better, and all-around just...more. So I'm looking for someone - anyone! - that has some, and I'd love discuss either a purchase or exchange (I've got all sorts of rare awesome plants )
Here's hoping I have more luck than I did trying to get some edible Dioscorea Bulbifera
Here are the tubers. Their peak season was about 3-4 weeks ago but I can still dig the tubers where the plants were. Is this the size you're looking for? It came from about a 4 sq foot area where the tops had been trampled away except for 2-3.

Heck yeah, this is perfect!
Would love to get some of these; interested in anything for trade? :D
1st, I am locked down 200 miles from my garden so cannot provide you with any tubers, sorry as I would have been happy to do so.
2nd, Invasive is a gross under statement. They make mint look weak and lacking in conviction. They seen to spread by both seed and runner. The runners break off and sprout new plants when you weed them. I struggle to keep them out of my raised beds and they are in two foot tall concrete block structures. I fought nut grass as a kid in central Fla and now am fighting these rattlesnake eggs in N. Fla.
3rd, They grow like crazy and produce well. I weeded a bushel from one 20x4 ft raised bed last year where they had gotten out of control and have no idea what is going to be awaiting this year. I need a couple good recipes.
