Love the colour! Have u tried eating it? Sounds like most of it is edible... so long as you prepare the pods the right way to avoid poisoning yourself. 😨

We grew these for the first time this year. Love the delicate pink flowers and magenta coloured pods.

I admit I've been too lazy to try eating it, plus they're so gorgeous I'd rather keep them in the garden. 😛 @KathyB

I had a better pic of the hyacinth beans, but like the one with my girls in it more. 😋

I guess that's why it's called SCARLET runner bean. I better check and make sure I've got the right name. 🙂😬

Haha, my purple green beans had purple flowers like these. Either way you got beautiful flowers & you get to eat the beans so it's still a win win situation, haha
