Hyacinth Bean Ruby Moon


This perennial climbing plant, also called Lablab produces fragrant flowers much like a bean, followed by striking vivid purple pods. The small beans within the pods can be eaten and are superb when cooked in curries. Its ornamental appeal makes it the ultimate ‘edimental’ to grow in the veg patch or in your main borders.

Average 10 seeds.
