Unknown flowering vine

A neighbor grew these vines & gave me some seeds. he called them "Jackbean". I looked up Jackbean on the web & found nothing similar to the seeds or the plant. I shall try to post photos of the seeds & the plant in bloom. I have not had any luck figuring this critter out. Any help identifying this plant would be appreciated greatly.

Well, I truly can't say anything helpful other than that they look like a relative to Sweetpeas, all except for their leaves. If you have any pods I'd be more than happy to take one off of your hands :wink:

Try looking under "Hyacinth Bean Vine". :)

Thanks!

Thank you. I posted this in another gardening forum & got the hyacinth bean vine response also. That is what it is. I would be most pleased to send you seeds, or pods, if you like.

Ooh, pretty please? I'm new to the forum and I'm not sure how seed swapping works, but please check out what I have and tell me if you'd like anything for me to trade.

:D
