Hyacinth Bean is a great looking climbing vine - it has striking colors, warm shades of purple and pink. A drought resistant, easy to grow vine that works really well on fences, walls and trellises. Can be an outstanding groundcover as well. I have grown it up a brick wall, but remember to give it a lot of support!
Remember not to plant too early, hyacinth bean is a tropical plant and will not tolerate cold weather.
Uses: This exotic climber will turn heads as it towers over your other plants! Give it a trellis, fence or tree to climb and this vine will go wild! Beautiful wine colored blooms and foliage are highly fragrant and very attractive to butterflies and other pollinators. The plant's purple seed pods are considered a delicacy in some cultures, but must be prepared with great caution and expertise, as they are highly toxic.
Tips: Build a trellis to train your Hyacinth Bean to grow taller to give it better posture. They also make great creeping carpets for your garden, but may choke out other plants if left to run wild.
