Traditional English bi-color grown since 1596! The name had mention to Queen Elizabeth I, “who was heavily made up with rouge and white chalk.” The gorgeous flowers of red and white are among the most beautiful of flowering beans. The large beans are also good as snaps, freshly shelled or as dry beans, which are chocolate and tan mottled in color.

What are the pros? Flowers are beautiful

What are the cons? Not many pods

Review:

Last year these did not come up. Maybe due to heavy rains right after planting. At any rate, this year I planted with very little expectations. They came up. And they completely covered my bamboo teepee and have the prettiest flowers. The bees and hummingbirds love them as much as I do. However, they don't produce many pods so I won't actually get to eat any of these. But at least I have enough seed to plant again next year. They're so beautiful and loved by the wildlife I'll continue to grow them.

Review:

I hate to write a not so nice review but my vines flowered but are not producing pods. Possibly the heat, but I was expecting a little more. Probably will try to plant a little earlier next year.

What are the pros? beautiful flowers, long vines

What are the cons? can't complain

Review:

I grew three types of runner beans this spring, Barnside Sweet, Sunset, and Painted Lady. I had some trouble getting all three going, but this was due to my lack of experience and can't be blamed on the beans. I have about 40 painted ladies, and they started producing flowers fairly quickly, some of the flowers being more distinctive than others. I had some that were almost completely red, and others that had the signature coloring, with a center so pale that it was almost white. All were beautiful. It gets very hot in the Phoenix area where I live, and though I water my plants twice a day, I have a feeling that they have been drying out a bit. Out of all my runner bean plants (80 total) I have only one bean, and it is on a very small painted lady that decided to fruit instead of run. Since it reached over 100 degrees a few weeks ago, they have all stopped flowering. I probably should have sewn them earlier than I did. I will plant more for the fall though, and expect better results.

What are the pros? Delicious, impressive red flow

What are the cons? Late to pod, not prolific

Review:

I grew this variety last year as ornamentation. I ended up cooking the beans and wow, what a great taste with only a little salt. I saved a few beans to plant this year. I ate too many and need to buy another seed packet this year. The plants are not overly prolific so I am giving the seeds only a 4 star.I live in the middle of the state so the climate is fairly mild, not super hot in the summer.

What are the pros? easy, pretty, edible

What are the cons? Not as expected

Review:

I expected to love these as much as the scarlet runners. I didn't. The flowers are not as brilliant, and the pods took slightly longer to produce with a lesser yield. That said, they worked out fine, and were lovely from bottom to top, and six seeds produced many dishes for our small family (four kids, but they're little ).
