Edible and ornamental, this lush and exotic climber boasts large, lavender flowers and unique pods with superb flavor. Nutrient-rich, all parts of the plant are edible. Traditionally blanched and stir fried, you can enjoy the beans steamed or tossed into the wok with just about anything. Sliced, they resemble little stars to adorn your plate. Leaves can be eaten like spinach, flowers can be used in salads, tubers can be eaten raw or cooked, and the seeds can be used in similar ways to soybeans.
