Hyacinth Bean ‘Ruby Moon’

$3.25

The shape and color of the leaves, as well as the color of the flowers made them a focal point in the garden. The vines grow quickly, especially in warm weather, and as a legume, they are nitrogen fixers and will help provide nitrogen for surrounding plants.

Purchase 10 or more and each seed packet is only $3/each (don’t need to be the same variety).

Description

I first saw hyacinth beans growing at Monticello years ago, they covered tall arbors in the vegetables garden. The shape and color of the leaves, dark purple stems, as well as the color of the flowers make them a focal point in the garden. The vines grow quickly, especially in warm weather, and as a legume, they are nitrogen fixers and will help provide nitrogen for surrounding plants. Flowers and seed pods can be used in bouquets. 10 seeds per pack.
