The Seed Savers Exchange - (Dolichos lablab) Striking dark-violet stems, leaf veins, and pods with beautiful lilac-colored blossoms extend above the foliage on long, straight stems. We do not recommend growing for food, but rather as an ornamental for its flowers. Seed pods and beans are poisonous at certain stages. In Asia and Africa, hyacinth beans are grown for food and can be eaten if prepared properly. Vines grow 10-15' if given proper support. Half-hardy annual.
Instructions: Sow seeds indoors in pots 1" deep. Transplant outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Can also be direct-seeded after the last frost in warmer areas. Prefers full sun and rich moist soil.
Start Indoors: 4-6 weeks before the last frost
Germination: 15-20 Days
Plant Outdoors: 24-36” Apart
Support: Trellis, tepee, or fencing
