Peas on the patio with purple flowers?

Pea Pod Peas aren't really meant for container gardening but there's no hurt trying. With that said, I've gotten a few good pods and it's worth a fresh little treat every other day or so. Not to mention my Jardine's parrot loves them way more than the frozen ones thawed with hot water.

I was also surprised by a pea plant with a unique mutation. It has purple flowers!!!

I did a little research online to see what was up, but then I cam across purple-podded peas. I want to grow those!

  1. Those purple peas are cool! I want 'em too.
    We have "rattlesnake" and "dragon's lingerie" beans that are streaked with purple. Sadly, they turn green when you steam them, so they really only look cool raw.

  2. Yea, I'd love to find ones that stay purple.
