A beautiful twining legume, this entire plant is ornamental -- the deep red stems and glossy veiny foliage bear an airy cascade of delicate, inch-long lilac-rose blossoms. Ruby-purple beanpods, 3 inches long, arise beneath the flowers over a long season. For a colorful ornamental display, Hyacinth Bean is unsurpassed!

The blooms arise all summer, and the beans mature in 80 days from a spring sowing in full sun. Give this plant something to climb and watch it take off! It reaches 10 feet tall.

Thomas Jefferson popularized the Hyacinth Bean in the United States when he began growing it in his garden in 1804. (One of the plantsmen he dealt with brought it from Europe, though it is originally native to Africa.) It is still grown at Monticello today!

Although the beans are edible, they must be cooked a particular way, so it is NOT recommended for eating. Instead, harvest the seedpods right before first frost, and share the seeds with friends! And of course, because Hyacinth Bean is a legume, the plant is a nitrogen-fixer, invaluable in the garden. Chop it up and till it back into the soil at season's end to improve next year's garden!

Direct-sow Hyacinth Bean if possible, waiting until the soil is reasonably warm in spring. Or, if your season is short, begin it indoors, but transplant the seedling as quickly as possible once temperatures are above freezing and the soil has started to warm. This is an annual bean, easy to grow and beautiful over a very long season. You will be so glad you tried it! Pkt is 25 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.
