What are the pros? Flowers, pollinator attractant
What are the cons? taste of immature pods
Beautiful orange/red flowers that attract the hummingbirds. Not sure what pest it was, but something found the young plants particularly delicious. Once they grew to ~12" tall, they were not longer eaten as much. Planted June 1, and it is now Aug 7 and they have grown to the top of our 10' trellis (and would grow taller if they could). Many bean pods--have tried some younger ones that taste similar to string beans but with a fuzzier texture (I wasn't quite a fan of that). I think I'll be waiting to harvest them as dry beans and see how that fares.
