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, productive

What are the cons? Fall prey to pests and mold

Review:

My first time growing runner beans. Of the several varieties I planted these took the cake when it came to height. I planted the whole packet lined up against a 6ft tall fence and had to continuously add poles and string as the vines kept outgrowing them. I think the frost finally killed them at at least 9-10 feet, but I stopped adding additional support and they fell over as they kept growing. Millions of flowers attracted hummingbirds and a lot of bees...and stinkbugs. Horrible year with stinkbugs. Heat causes blooms to all drop and pods to not form. Once August hit they finally started developing pods and I was shelling dry beans daily in October. I shelled a lot of immature beans to cut in half and freeze. Made delicious venison chili with those beans. Bean pattern is beautiful. Dry beans are brown with a white streaky splash, immature beans are grey with a white streaky splash. Did not try to eat as young pods. But the beans were delicious!

What are the pros? Flowers, hummingbirds, yummy

What are the cons? None

Review:

The flowers were beautiful! I was pleased that the flowers brought hummingbirds to my vegetable garden. The vines produced a good number of beans. Enough to enjoy as snaps, shells and save seeds for next year! Very happy with the Painted Lady!

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.

What are the pros? Pretty flowers

What are the cons? No pods

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.
