More commonly known as the Runner Bean, these beautiful and vibrant flowering vines produce a delicious harvest. You can pick and enjoy them all summer through late fall. When you open the giant green pods, the bean itself is a stunning mix of pink and purple. A huge plus I’ve noticed when growing this variety of bean, is that the tiny red flowers attract hummingbirds to your garden! They swarm the tall, thick vines and sometimes will even use them as a resting place to sit and relax.
