Vining up and around while boasting warm peachy-rose blossoms and like other runner beans, attractive to pollinators. An interest fact about runner beans is that they twine clockwise where pole beans go counter clockwise. Use as a fresh vegetable with its edible flowers and pods or as an ornamental climber.
Germination: 7-14 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75ºF
Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep
Starting Indoors: 2-3 weeks before last frost. Sow 1-2 seeds per cell/pot. Provide 70-80ºF soil temperature. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 8-12" apart.
Sowing Outdoors: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 55-60ºF. Sow 4-6” apart, thin to 8-12". Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination.
How much does a packet plant: 8-10 foot single row
Harvest: Young tender snap beans until they become fibrous; steamed, baked, boiled or sautéed. Young seeds can shelled and cooked like lima beans. Dried beans take a long time to cook and can be soaked 6-8 hours before cooking. Add the edible flowers to salads
Tips: Provide support with a trellis, fence or poles. Keep beans harvested to encourage more flowers. Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants.

They were very pretty, but not very productive. I think I'll grow them for flowers, and stick to bush beans for food.
