Manchu Tubergourd

(Thladiantha dubia)

Thladiantha dubia, the Manchu tubergourd, Golden creeper, wild potato, or (French) thladianthe douteuse, is a herbaceous perennial climbing vine of the gourd family. It is native to Russia, northern China, and Korea.

Like other members of the genus, it is dioecious. It grows from a tuber and spreads vegetatively by sending out underground rhizomes that produce new tubers.
