Hyacinth Bean Vine
Are there different species of the hyacinth bean vine? I purchased bean seeds from Park Seed in the fall of 2015 and didn't get the results I expected. The vine flowered a little too early and the height is only approx 5 feet. The leaves are "distorted." Please see attachment pics from vines that I grew in Connecticut a couple of seasons ago. This is what I expected from the seeds I purchased last fall from Park Seed to plant in Tennessee, which is where I live now. I got disappointing results this year. I wish I had the seeds from the pods that I grew in Connecticut; unfortunately, I couldn't harvest them for several reasons. Question: can I get the "large vine" seeds? Is there such a thing? Thank you very much. George Terry
