looking for heat-tolerant runner beans or peas with showy booms

JeremyDMarch 18, 2013

I was going to use scarlet runner beans, but just found out they don't like heat (it hits the upper 90s pretty regularly in the summer here, sometmes in the 100s)

Also, I'm interested any other heat and humidity tolerant vegetables with ornamental qualities to kind of make the veggie garden look prettier
(It's too shady in the backyard to grow veggie)

I plant oriental yard-long runner beans on my fence and they not only look good by the beans, eaten as green snaps cooked in stir-fry, are delicious.
