Carefree Dwarf Hestia runner bean plants grow 12-14 inches tall with rich foliage and prolific flowers. Hummingbirds love them and flock to feed from the pretty blossoms. Hestia is perfect for pots, window boxes or hanging baskets for a lush cascading effect. These edible flowers have a mild nutty flavor, great for snacks, as garnishes and in salads. Flowers are followed by bean pods; the beans inside can be dried for making outstanding chili, soups and stews.

ANNUAL VINE: Summer/fall bloom with edible pods and seeds, Frost tender

EASIEST TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN: In late spring once weather is warm and settled and nights stay above 50°F (10°C), plant seeds in a sunny spot. Erect well-anchored supports at planting time to support the rapidly growing vines. Poke seeds in 1 inch deep and 3 in. apart and firm soil over them. If training bean vines up poles, plant 4 or 5 beans several inches from each pole, or plant seeds 3 to 4 inches apart along a fence or trellis. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 5 to 10 days.

THIN OR TRANSPLANT: Beans don’t transplant well, so we advise sowing seeds where they are to grow. Thin seedlings to 6 inches apart.

GROWING NOTES: Always wait until weather is warm before planting seeds so beans will germinate and grow well. Keep bean vines well watered. In very hot climates, beans will flower but not set pods until weather moderates in fall. Both the crispy bean flavored blossoms and the flat green pods are deliciously edible; let some of the pretty purple and black beans mature in their pods to use for tasty dry bean recipes.
