Not only is it a versatile food plant with edible flowers, beans, and roots, it has eye-catching scarlet flowers that add a wonderful "cottage garden" look to the vegetable patch. The young tender beans are cooked like snap beans while the mature beans can be shelled and eaten either fresh or dried. Easy to grow. Needs a trellis or pole for support. 65 days.
