Runner Bean- Scarlet Emperor

Phaseolus coccineus


  • Climbing
  • Delicious long flat green pods
  • Attractive scarlet red flowers


Runner beans are a different species to common (French) beans and have some unique characteristics. Frost tender perennial but normally grown as an annual. Attractive fast growing vine with lush green foliage and sprays of scarlet red flowers. Plants produce masses of long, flat, green beans that grow to around 20cm. Beans can be eaten raw when very young and tender, cooked like a common bean when larger or left to mature and used as a dried bean. Young beans have a deliciously sweet and rich flavour. Fast growing and heavy cropping. Very attractive plant; is often grown as an ornamental. Does best in cooler climates. Also known as Seven Year Bean, Scarlet Runner Beans and Multiflora Bean.

Goodlooking plant, not a favourite of the bees

5 January 2019
This grew beautifully, and I loved the flowers. However, our bees ignored it, meaning no pollination and no beans.
