I SELL AND SHIP MY SEEDS ALL YEAR LONG!

I am really more of a vegetable gardener than a flower gardener, but flowers can renew the soul and lift the spirit.

The old fashioned flowers I offer at Amishland Heirloom Seeds are the few I absolutely can't live without. Their color and pure beauty make every day more lovely. Their fragrance alone is the best aromatherapy.


All seed packs are $3.00 each

These runner beans were grown for me by my farming friend Cliff, who lives in the pacific northwest. Here is what Cliff has to say about these: "HAMMOND'S is a lower growing, scarlet flowered runner bean, grows up to four or five feet tall. The PAINTED LADY is taller, 6 to 8 feet. (For a more detailed description of Painted Lady Runner Bean please look further down on this page.) In this mix, you have scarlet flowers in the middle to bottom of the plant, and the orange white flowers from the middle to the top. Creates a stunning floral display."

click to see fullsized photo **SOLD OUT** PAINTED LADY RUNNER BEAN - also called York or Lancaster Runner - Species coccineus

The name "Painted Lady" refers to Queen Elizabeth I, who wore rouge and makeup in her day. This is the only runner bean with unique bi-colored blossoms . It is considered an ornamental climber in England because of its rapid growth and its many lovely flowers. It will climb counterclockwise, unlike most climbing beans. Very rare seed. The lovely whitish pink and coral red bi-colored blossoms are so decorative. They are edible as well with a rich "beany" taste if picked small. It has huge long pods which get up over foot long and are filled with very large mottled buff and brown seeds. They have a unique little "hook" on the end of the pod that I haven't ever seen before in any other beans.

These are so incredibly beautiful and extremely attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. I grow them all over my fences. This is a prime example of an ornamental edible. It was first introduced to England in 1633 by John Tradescant, gardener to Charles I. Described by Arrabida Flora of Rio Janeiro in 1827, and still very rare. It has a Pole Bean running habit. The locals here in Amishland in the early 1800's used to serve runner beans "whittled" into long shreds called in dialect "Schipple," and made them into a pickled form like sauerkraut called "Schipplebuhne." I had searched for years for this rare variety and now you can have it in your gardens too. These runner beans were grown for me by my farming friend Cliff who lives in the pacific northwest who also took the lovely photo. **SOLD OUT**

DESIREE RUNNER BEAN MIX~ Species coccineus~

(Sorry there is no picture) Pure Desiree has pure white blossoms, and the original seeds are an all white seed. This mix contains both white seed and the dark seed which is a scarlet type with red flower. So these seeds probably contains genes of both varieties. That is why I am selling this as a mix.

also known as "Sweet White Runner Bean"~

Cliff, my friend out west grows out all my beans for Amishland Heirloom Seeds.This is what he had to say about this important and hard to find runner bean: "white blossom, white seed, 1/2 to 1 inch in length, long shaped, not kidney bean shaped, POLE, needs 8-10 foot trellis - plant in late May, or soil temperature of about 80 degrees. Originally from Europe--dry or shelly bean popular in Italian, French, Greek, Polish cuisine. Tolerates heat for bean production much better than most
runner beans. Here, I did not start to set seed until late August when temps started to cool. White bloom very popular with hummingbirds."

Look in my recipe section for some great ethnic ways to serve these beans.
