Runner beans are incredibly easy to grow, bearing masses of long, sweet-tasting beans all summer long. There's a huge range of cultivars to choose from, bearing red, white or bi-coloured flowers, adding to their ornamental value.
Phaseolus coccineus 'Painted Lady' is a traditional runner bean variety, worth growing as much for its pretty red and white flowers as for its large crops of tender, well-flavoured beans. Its good looks mean that it looks at home in the flower garden as well as the vegetables patch, making Phaseolus coccineus 'Painted Lady' ideal for smaller gardens where space is at a premium.
