What are the pros? Easy, beautiful,,tasty
What are the cons? None
Red stems, deep,green leaves and spikes of gorgeous purple flowers make this a stunning ornamental that I have frown along the railing of my front porch for 3 years now. And then the pods! A brilliant, shiny purple hue, in copious numbers! I don't know if my variety is edible in the pod...they seem tough, but I shell them and cook the green or turning-black beans like edamame in stir fries and soups. Yummy! The seeds are easy to gather, store, and sprout here in humid 7b NC. I get volunteers from fallen seeds too, and dig them up as gifts for friends. A great plant!
