Canavalia lineata / Hamanatamame ハマナタマメ

 
Canavalia lineata is a perennial vine inhabiting seashores. The stem grows well to reach as far as 5m off. The leaf consists of 3 lobes thick in the obovate or orbicular shape, 6-12cm in length, 4-10cm in width—leaf axils deriver cymes with 2 or 3 light red-purple flowers in each of them. Legume pods with seeds in them are big, measuring 5-10cm in length and 3-3.5cm in width, in which there exist 2-5 sources in each. Bloom time: June-September.
