Beautiful vine is hardy in diverse weather
by Megan Michelle
These vines have done tremendous here in Oklahoma City, where we have a lot of severe weather. They have endured a few cold nights, hail storms, extreme wind, and now 100 degree days with nearly 100% humidity and they have just kept climbing. I have them growing on an 8 metal foot trellis and they have looked happy everyday. I harvest the dried pods and am saving up the dried beans for some fall soup once it's chilly again. The vine itself is has well-mannered growth and it has lovely foliage, so I would consider just growing it on a trellis to produce some shade in the yard. It has not had any problems with pests
