Provides color all season, has purple stems, lilac rose blossoms and shiny 3" magenta pods.  Perennial in Zones 9-10. All other Zones will be an annual. Thick foliage makes a good screen cover. This vine would be recommended for arbors, trellises and fences. Annual. Blooms in summer. Full sun. Striking purple stems with dark green leaves and purple flower clusters, followed by eye-catching velvety purple bean pods. The Hyacinth Bean Vine requires well-drained soil to thrive and is much more drought tolerant than other bean varieties.  20 Seeds per package.

Flower Garden - Tips on Growing Hyacinth Bean  From Seeds

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 5-12 days at 65-70°F (18-21°C).


Direct seed: After last frost, sow about 6 seeds per foot, 1/2" deep. When the seedlings have true leaves, thin to 12" apart.  Important Note:  Raw bean seeds are poisonous.  

  • Hyacinth Bean Vine are grown from seeds. Sow  Hyacinth Bean Vine seeds directly into your flower garden after all danger of frost has past. Plant seeds  1/2" deep.

  • Final plant spacing should be six inches apart.

  • Seeds germination period requires two to three weeks.

 Plant Tip: For more successful germination, soak seeds overnight, prior to planting. 

  • Days to Germination: 14 - 21

  • Grow in full sun. Plants prefer a rich, well draining soils to fuel their fast, season long growth.

  • Mix a healthy dose of compost into the soil prior to planting. 

  • Plants like a lot of water and nutrients. While they like lots of water, they do not like wet soil. Keep soil moist, not wet. Add fertilizer when planting and every month during the season. Use a high phosphorous formula just before the first blooming period.

  •  Plants will begin to bloom in summer, and continue to do so into the fall. After the flowers bloom, purple pods will begin to form. They grow up to three inches. Raw beans inside are poisonous. Keep away from children and pets. 

  • Plants are annuals that are very susceptible to frost. They may still be in bloom when frost arrives. Unfortunately, covering this long vine, may prove impractical.

  •  Hyacinth Bean Vine are good "re-seeders". If the pods are allowed to open and pour out their beans, you will find many new plants next year. Do not disturb the soil until seedlings have begun to grow. Thinning will almost certainly be needed.
