Hyacinth Bean - Ruby Moon
A show stopper in the garden. Vigorous vines are covered in sprays of lilac-rose flowers which are followed by shiny magenta seed pods providing visual interest all season long. Use leaves, flowers and pods in floral design work. Pods also dry well. Flowers can be eaten fresh or steamed and seeds are edible if boiled twice before eaten. This is a hummingbird and butterfly favourite. Makes a beautiful privacy screen for a porch or balcony. Perennial in zones 9-10. Grown as an annual in our zone 5 garden.
Days to Maturity: 110-120 days
Life Cycle: Tender perennial, often grown as an annual. Hardy in zones 9-10
