With such magnificent clusters of rich-red, edible flowers, this variety is predominantly used as a flowering screen, vine, or fence cover. Little known is that this runner bean has an extremely rich flavor when picked young and can be shelled for green or dried beans when pods mature. This packet sows up to 10 feet or one 4-foot diameter teepee. See inside for instructions on how to build a bean teepee.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED.

1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°-85°F.

Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date.

NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.

When to start inside: Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
