Painted Lady Runner Bean

2 Reviews | Write a Review
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? my wife loves it

What are the cons? none


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.

What are the cons?


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.
