This charming little vine produces dark red blooms which are followed by edible winged pods. Best eaten small, they are excellent steamed or added to other vegetables. Sauté whole in butter and they taste very much like asparagus. Thrives in poor soil and full sun.

Adaptable to most garden soils and will thrive in even poor soil in a sunny position; requires only average moisture.
