"You may be more familiar with the bean that this plant produces! I am in fact talking about the Sopophorous Plant! Let's begin. Allow me to explain the magnificence of the Sopophorous Plant."
Professor Pomona Sprout regarding this plant to her sixth year Herbology students[src]

The Sopophorous plant was a rare magical plant that sprouted in gloomy marshlands, especially if fertilised by Mooncalf dung.[1]

The Sopophorous plant had a spindly stem and large leaves with developed vascular tissue, which had a reddish tint. By the leaves grew bean pods, containing a single pearly-white bean that resembled an overgrown mistletoe berry. Sopophorous beans had powerful magical properties, and are used in Potion-making.[1]

During the 1989–1990 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Pomona Sprout taught sixth year Herbology students about the Sopophorous plant.[2]
