Coastal Jack beans (Canavalia lineata) on Kushima Island(Kushima no hamanatamame)


Pink flowers at the tips of vines

Coastal Jack beans extend their vines on the beach, and produce pink flowers. Compared to beach peas (Lathyrus japonicus), which also belong to the family Leguminosae, coastal Jack beans have larger flowers of about 3 cm. After the flowers fall, the plant produces large beans in shells.
