Phaseolus coccineus 'Red Nightfall', 6 seeds
Scarlet runner bean is an ornamental and edible tender perennial often grown as quick-flowering annual. This vigorous, showy, fully-leafed twiner grows as fast as Jack's Beanstalk! :-). One of the few bean varieties that prefer cooler climate and can be sowed earlier than the rest. Starting from mid spring through summer, it is covered with clusters of scarlet-red blooms that are simply irresistable to hummingbirds. The seeds themselves are fascinating and pretty. Not only are they big, they are also black and splotched. These are truly magic beans to treasure! 10 feet or more. Full sun. Rich, well-drained soil. Average water. Fresh seeds, harvested 11/2017.
