An old heirloom bean variety with vines that grow up to 10ft with bursts of gorgeous scarlet flowers. Many grow this bean as an ornamental plant on trellises because the blooms are stunning but the immature bean pods and dried beans are tasty too!
Runner beans are a favorite nectar source for hummingbirds and butterflies and we like to grow them on a teepee trellis. The dried beans are a beautiful black with purple to mauve splotches.
(Approximately 25 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: Sow seeds 1" deep every 4" a few weeks after last frost in full sun. Vines grow up to 10ft and like to be trellised.
