Scarlet Runner Bean

First little bud! This one is a perennial in Central Fl, an annual in cooler climates, and hummingbirds love it! Easy to grow from seed. I have had better luck growing it in full sun than part sun. The beans, I hear, are delicious, and the flowers are edible as well (they also taste like beans!). This one will cover a trellis in one summer and even its foliage is beautiful.
