I read that the native americans used this plant for food and wanted to know how or what parts that they used? (if anyone knows)??

It grows beautifully in the fields of Kentucky.

Thanks

The USDA.GOV website lists this plant as a native plant to the eastern section of the US. It also state the Native Americans relied on this plant for sustenance. I even checked the noxious/invasive plants list and did not find it there. Should be a safe plant to use.

Great vine for fast cover of fences, etc. Blooms in the late summer well into fall. - Can become invasive at times, but easily trimmed. Loves humid weather.

Well worth growing for it's delicate pea like flowers. A real keeper in a "natural" garden. Grows fast and isnt fussy. Leaves are as delicate looking as the flowers. Great for covering string/board arbours.
