Bean plants produce wonderful flowers. For gardeners the flowers are a sign that the plant is growing successfully and will soon produce beans. Every variety of bean has its own colour flower and many gardeners chose to grow beans particularly for the floral display.
The flowers on beans are quite exotic with beautiful pale pastel colours and strong bright vivid colours. As these are followed by beans for eating it seems the best of both worlds to have attractive garden colours and then fresh beans. Beans work very well in the shaded confines of small city gardens.
