Runner Bean Flowers ‘Enorma’

Runner beans are tall, vining plants most often grown for their green seed pods.  However, many people do not realise that they may also eat the mature beans inside, which are delicious cooked in soups or stews, as well as the bright scarlet flowers which make a vibrant addition to many savoury dishes including salads and soups.  Runner Beans are a popular plant for the vegetable garden but can also make an extremely attractive edible plant for the ornamental garden.
