Hi All:

Has anyone out there ever heard of the "Shell plant" or as it is referred to in the botanical world "Botanical Name:Vigna caracalla (syn. Phaseolus giganteus).

I ordered 4 plants from Michigan Bulb and planted them and they actually look like shells opening up . They are a climber and have beautiful pink/violet flowers.

Happy Thursday!

Maryann
