Just a few plants in 8cm pots.

This is a perennial vine which does well in moist soil. It has beautiful vivid blue solitary flowers with yellow markings. When the flower is finished the pods form.  They   can be eaten as a vegetable when young and tender. Being a legume, its roots are nitrogen fixing, and it improves  the soil through the decomposition of humus which is nitrogen rich.
