Save me some time - Ornamental Fabaceae

Post by MWP admin » Mon Oct 25, 2010 9:06 pm

I met this Fabaceae (Pea Family) plant 2 or 3 times so far and is a kind of Pisum whith broad leaves, large legumes, and nice pink-purple flowers, also pretty large. It has a climbing habit and I have seen it over walls.

Maybe some of you is familiar with it already and so save me some time researching.

Hi, it is possibly Lablab purpureus (English: Hyacinth Bean, Lablab Bean, or Poor Man's Bean) called in Maltese: L-lablab! It is a vegetable, and also grown for ornament, sometimes at home walls (e.g. Luqa).

Thanks very much - I have seen it at M'Forn and road to Hondoq ir-Rummien. Not very frequent and infact missed its place in Weber's book about ornamental plants.

Although the epithet purpurea, the species can have white flowers as the specimens I found in Qala, Gozo.

Confirmed here:
