The rich hued flowers mature into shiny, flat 3-inch pods that hang like purple patent leather ornaments against the dense canopy of twining foliage. These show-stopping climbers win the admiring attention of all our garden visitors.

TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

In late spring once weather is warm and settled and nights stay above 50°F (10°C), plant seeds in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil 6 inches apart and 1 inch deep. Firm soil over seeds. Keep seedlings well weeded and watered.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow indoors 4 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1 inch deep and keep warm and moist as seedlings emerge over 7 to 10 days. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors.

Transplant very carefully once nights stay above 50°F (10°C) before plants get too crowded. Space seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart. Avoid disturbing roots as much as possible when transplanting.

 

GROWING NOTES

Erect heavy netting, a strong trellis or a sturdy open wood or wire fence 8 to 10 feet tall at planting time to support these warm weather climbers. Guide the first young tendrils to twine onto supports. Combine with morning glories or climbing nasturtiums for a glorious summer display of flowers and pretty pods.
