This is a macro of a bean of the Scarlet runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus). The blooms are a wonderful scarlet, but the beans to me are the really beautiful part of this plant!

    1. Thanks a lot, Ferdy, that's great! Posted 7 years ago
  2. haha, yes, this one is captivating! I was thinking of a snake, or to be honest some kind of tatoo (but that would be off topic, so I stuck with the snake). A bean, now who would have thought so:)
    You are quite a thinker. That makes me think:)

    1. A snake! Now that's a great idea! But I don't think I'd like to be that close to a snake... :D Posted 7 years ago

''Phaseolus coccineus'', known as pole bean, runner bean or scarlet runner bean , is a plant in the Fabaceae family. Runner beans have also been called "Oregon Lima Bean", and in Nahuatl "ayocotl" or in Spanish "ayocote". It differs from the common bean in several respects: the cotyledons stay in the ground during germination, and the plant is a perennial vine with tuberous roots . This species originated from the mountains of Central America.

The vine can grow to two meters or more in.. more
