Hyacinthe Bean

By Lori


Hyacinthe Bean (Dolichos)

growing tall but not filling in as much as I would like... the colours of the blossom are very close to the dahlia and the cleome in the vicintiy.

Would you be able to eat them or are they simply ornamental ? I like the colours.
All the best, Hywel.

Hello Hywel and Blodyn ...says on the seed packet that the beans are red and edible and that the flowers attract hummingbirds! bonus!

I really like them Lori, both leaves and flowers. I'll have to try and get the seeds for next year. That is if you can get them here. No humming birds though. lol. Hope you're allright.
Best wishes, Hywel.
