Revered as a holy flower in India and used in daily puja rituals. Vines reaching as high as 4m/15ft are covered in very showy dark blue flowers with white centres. The flowers, leaves, young shoots and tender pods are all edible. The flowers give a vibrant blue colour to teas and foods that changes to pink when a few drops of lemon or lime are added. Chefs and foodies have taken note of this magical hue-changing quality and are adding flowers to food and drinks with mesmerizing effect. Seeds and roots are used in India as a purgative.
