Butterfly Pea, Lavender Queen

80% of 100

This double-petaled, lavender- colored butterfly pea vine is stunning! This member of the bean family is native to Southeast Asia. The blooms are extra fancy and ornamental, and as a bonus, they’re edible! The lovely flowers make a natural food dye and soothing tea to calm the nerves. This incredibly heat- and humidity-tolerant flowering vine will look stunning growing up arbors, archways, and fences in your summer garden. A must have in southern landscapes, but also adapts well to northern gardens as long as the summer is warm. An extra select strain from Thailand.
