Hyacinth Bean  10 seeds

Dolichos LabLab is a different climber to impress your neighbours with, this climbing bean that can be grown just like a climbing french bean has the attraction of purple foliage and beautiful pea type scented lavender flowers. These are followed by outstanding purple to red shiny attractive bean pods. The beans are edible but only after repeated cooking and draining of the water so please do not try this. Easy to grow in a warm sunny position reaching a maximum of 15ft. Although a perennial it is best treated as an annual in the UK. (An unusual plant name that keeps repeating itself in my head like a bad song - the other one is the Wonga Wonga Vine - sad isn't it?)
