Runner Bean 'White Lady'

The pure white flowers of this runner bean are thought to be less attractive to birds. Hot weather can prevent pods from setting on other varieties, but 'White Lady' still performs well, making it suitable for later sowings.
Sow: Mid-spring to early summer
Harvest: Midsummer to mid-fall
Soil Preference: Well-drained soil, moist soil
Sun or Shade: Full sun, partial or dappled shade
