Runner bean 'painted Lady'


Runner bean 'painted Lady' (Phaseolus coccineus (Runner bean))

Heirloom variety. Nice spin off of the old scarlet. I'm hoping these reach even 1/2 the climb they made last year. So far its been slow going.

Thanks Flcrazy. It was fun to find this color flower. Wish I had the season to get seeds out of it every year.

These were a fun change, though they are a little smaller and more tender.
