This tropical vine is a legume used as a vegetable in Indian cuisine more notably in central and south India. Although it is an evergreen it can be grown as an annual in frost prone areas. Lavender flowers bloom among the trailing vines followed by the “bean” in the shape of a sword.
This plant makes a most interesting deck plant and grows well as a container plant for several years if pruned and shaped, for the home or greenhouse, in addition to being a specimen plant.
Treat as a tropical that cannot tolerate frost.
