Detailed Product Info

A highly ornamental flowering vine with shimmering bronze foliage, fuchsia flowers, and shiny burgundy seed pods sets prolific beauty until late in the season. The perfect backdrop to changing fall foliage. Hyacinth Bean's height makes it a stunning plant to train on trellising in ornamental landscapes. The leaves, seed pods, and flowers are also popular in floral design work. Can also be grown in larger container planting.

Growing Instructions

For earlier blooms, start seeds indoors 4 weeks before last frost date. Start 1 seed per cell, use deep cells to accommodate the long roots. Transplant or direct sow after all threat of frost has passed, spacing plants or seeds 6-12 inches apart. Provide a very sturdy trellis. Though a bit slower to take off than typical garden beans, Hyacinth Bean is very vigorous in the summer and can reach 8 feet high! Flowers and seed pods can be used in cut flower arrangements.
