Hi! Just wondering if anyone can identify this flowering plant? It has purple and white flowers that grow outward in a row, and purple pod-like leaves surrounded by green ones.
Thank you

Based on the flowers and the pods it appears to be something in the pea family, but that's a large family, so hopefully someone will be able to help you with the exact specie.

Latin name is Dolichos lablab or Lablab purpurea. Grew it one year in the polytunnel, but even there it was not hot enough for it.
