Runner Bean 'White Lady' is a lovely runner bean with pure white prolific flowers which taste deliciously beany. I grow this as much for the flowers to add to salads, rice and couscous as I do for the bean.

Plant 2 or 3 of each of our runner bean varieties, alternating down the row to give you stripes of colour from their bright flowers and plant with Sweet Peas too to attract the pollinators and increase productivity.
