Popular in the 1700s but thought extinct until the last few remaining seeds were donated to the Heritage Seed Library in 1978. These extremely pretty, red to purple flowered broad beans not only produce multi-stemmed plants but each flower is also really fragrant.
Perfect to plant in a border as well as a veg garden! In fact, the flowers are so pretty they almost look like orchids in the garden. Growing to around 90cm tall, the plants can even be grown in large containers or raised beds.
