Not sure is this off topic?

A friend bought some sweet potato leaves & vines at an Asian grocery 
store in Chinatown, New York City yesterday. Apparently the leaves and 
young shoots are a popular green used in tropical Asian recipes.

My question - What about the colorful leaf forms used as summer 
ornamentals - are they also edible? I can understand that the flavor 
might be different. Hoping there is someone with experience / 
suggestions on growing an ornamental garden and eating it too.
