Grow this climber on a trellis as it can reach 8 feet in height. Dolichos lablab is a perennial in frost-free zones, and in colder areas it will be a fast growing annual. Commonly called Redleaved Hyacinth Bean, this vine produces purple flowers and green or purple colored seed pods that are 2 to 3 inches long, and resemble a lima bean pod. The foliage has hints of deep red, and the blooms are nicely scented and attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Typically it will bloom from mid-summer until fall. Start the Dolichos lablab seeds directly outdoors after frost danger has passed. Cover seed with 1/2 inch of soil. Keep the soil moist. With temperatures between 65 - 70F, germination is usually within 20 days. Plants should be spaced about 12 inches apart. Hyacinth Bean likes a position in full sun. For areas with cold spring temperatures, start the flower seeds indoors 6 weeks before the end of frost season.
