Plant - 3; Laysan; Ipomoea pes-caprae

This item contains two illustrations of the leaves and stem of Ipomea pes-caprae (sweet potato). A large painting of three leaves attached to a stem occupies the upper plane of this item. A smaller image of new growth attached to a stem shows a break from a green stem to a brown stem, likely documenting the plant's root system.
