About on The Leap

For the Serpentine Gallery Yoko Ono has produced 'Grow Love with Me' (2013). This organic artwork consists of a 'Magic Bean', a swordbean Canavalia Gladiata, which when grown, reveals the word LOVE. The fast growing vine will climb and quickly cover a trellis, fence or wall. The message bean plant will continue to grow for several years if it is grown in a warm climate, or kept indoors in a cooler climate.
