Hyacinth Bean Vine

Dolichos lablab. Originally a native of tropical Asia, Hyacinth Bean Vine quickly scrambles up any support to create a beautiful screen of attractive, dark green foliage and intense, deep purple flowers. It prefers to be sown directly outside after all threat of frost has passed. A vigorous twining vine, it must have solid support from a trellis, fence or secure netting. Annual. Summer to fall flowering. Height: 8' to 10'.

Average seed life: 3 years.

Moon Shadow Hyacinth Bean Vine

Moon Shadow is an improved, easy to grow, climbing annual prized for its beautiful, 1½"-long, two-tone lilac-purple flowers that resemble Pea or Bean flowers. Once its long-lasting blossoms have gone by, you’ll be rewarded with a second show of glimmering, royal purple, 4"-long seed pods. (You can eat the Beans, but they’re rather tough.)

Gardening Tips

Gardening Tips: Days of Vines and Roses
If you’re looking for a great trellis on which to grow an annual vine, consider a sturdy, well-established climbing rose. The thorny canes provide excellent support, and won’t mind a little competition. Since the vines will come into their glory later in the season, they’ll add color to a rose that has finished its main flush of bloom. But any overlap will produce handsome combinations as well: Hyacinth Bean Vine or Sweet Peas with a pale pink New Dawn rose, or blue Morning Glories with your favorite yellow-flowered climber.
