The entire plant is purple! Ruby Moon Hyacinth Bean (Dolichos lablab) is an award-winning ornamental that provides spectacular all season color.

Each packet contains approximately 10 seeds.

Planting and Growing Tips:
These prolific, low maintenance beauty grows well in sunny garden spots and require plenty of room to accommodate their sprawling habit. Sow indoors 4- to 6-weeks before the last frost date of spring or direct sow in prepared beds after temperatures have warmed. Seeds can be chipped and soaked for better germination. Thin seedlings 12- to 18-inches apart and provide support so plants can climb.

Plants can be pinched back when young to encourage branching and flowering. Spread a nice layer of mulch to help conserve moisture, improve aesthetics and prevent weeds.
