Painted Lady Runner Bean

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? 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 ).

What are the pros? my wife loves it

What are the cons? none

Review:

I really like this plant for the simple fact that it is both ornamental and practical. The flowers range from pink with white stripes to red and the hummingbirds love them. Often I will come out in the morning to find at least one hummingbird hovering in front of my trellises. Which has an added appeal for my wife who generally does not care for vegetable plants. Moreover, she also loves the beautiful flowers that seem to stretch out from the plants. As for the mottled beans, they are pretty tasty. We were able to harvest quite a number of pods for both replanting and eating.

Review:

I live in an extremly hot climate in the north of South Africa, so planted my painted lady beans along with all my other crops in our winter season, the vines did well but never flowered and did not produce one bean.
