A fellow DG member gave me two pigeon pea plants at an RU. I haven't been able to talk with her about them, so I wonder if anyone grows them simply for their blooms?

They appear to be a coming plant or at least getting tall though what little I've read indicates they are bushy.

Can anyone offer their knowledge of or experience with the pigeon pea?

Thanks.

Yes I know that. Which is why I asked if people grew them for their flowers alone. Is this a plant I could put on a trellis like the hyacinth bean (which is not edible)?

Or is a shrubby thing. I have no experience with the thing, but would like to get them started on a growth spurt soon.

Thanks Linda!!! ;)
