Phaseolus coccineus (Scarlet Runner Pole Bean )

This beautiful edible and most ornamental pole bean is a sight to behold. My 3 pots worth have weathered several storms, been near frozen, windwhipped, and brutalized by mother nature. I had actually reseeded the pots assuming certain doom was upon them. While barren of leaves in a few spots, they are thriving despite their abusive welcome to the world as they emerged from the soil. It is my wish that the later planted seedlings beneath their beat up brethren will fill in the "holes" and give us a grand display of both colour and foliage.

I have to admit, gardening in a pot is not necessarily difficult, but terse in moments.
