Planting & Care
I first encountered wild yam on a walk around what became the North American Native Plant Society nature reserve, the Shining Tree Woods, in autumn 12 years ago. Next spring that vine had many seeds, and I received permission to take a few.
The seed of wild yam will germinate readily. When you start your plants, you will find that within a few years they will spread by both a more robust root system (which is like five-millimetre or two-tenths of an inch-thick pasta, interconnected versus discrete, and a dark reddish colour) and new shoots from these roots, or by seeds being dispersed by wind and creatures.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: (25ÂșC).

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

  • collect seed from the vines in late fall or anytime in winter separate the seed from the seed capsules in a plot in the garden, clear away any plants there now, and loosen the soil:
    the plot will need a few hours of sun during the spring season mark the garden plot! scatter the seed on the bare ground, cover with a sprinkling of garden soil and some leaf litter:

Special Feature:
It is suggested that Dioscorea be limited to pot culture.
Medicinal use:
  • Native Americans and early herbalist had many uses for this plant including the treatment of many female and childbirth related problems.
  • It was also used to treat various gastrointestinal problems, muscle spasms, various painful conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism.

  • There seems to be no scientific evidence of its effectiveness for these conditions.
  • Nonetheless, plants of this genus are valuable to modern medicine.
  • Many of our modern steroids are manufactured from diosgenin extracted from them.

  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
