Dolichos Lablab Alba
White Hyacinth Bean
White, heart-shaped flowers blossom along tall stems emitting an aromatic, sweet fragrance, similar to honey and attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. Light green colored beans follow the blooms. Perfect for growing as a ground cover or on a trellis, Hyacinth Bean makes an excellent addition to any garden. Blooming from summer until frost, this determined vine can quickly reach 20 feet or more. This species is not frost tolerant, so be sure to plant in full sun and provide adequate water.
