The Most Beautiful Bean
Adding height to a late summer/early fall garden is easy with Hyacinth Bean vines. Think "Jack and the Bean Stalk" - yes that kind of growth! I put two tall obelisk shaped tuteurs in a front garden bed. One got more sun than the other and achieved more magnificent growth and flowers. Neither one of them disappointed me. I can imagine that a bride planning a backyard wedding could find a sunny spot in the Spring and cover an arbor by early September with gorgeous flowers at a fraction of the cost of a florist's design. It's even possible to use the flowers and pods in bouquets with beautiful results. Take a look at this beautiful example of a bean clad arbor from Ivyclad.com with a link to her blog.

Can you tell I'm seriously in love with this beautiful bean?
This lovely bouquet with Hyacinth Bean vine is from Springwellgardens.com
A bride (or the bride's mother) can really cut costs and grow mounds of these beautiful flowers from a couple of packets of seeds. You can find them at Renee's Garden.com.
