Willow Leaf

95 days — 'Willow Leaf' is an attractive old pole-type variety that will reach eight to ten feet and does exhibit some tolerance to drought and heat. The leaves are linear-lancelolate and narrow which explains the name. It is very vigorous and productive.

'Willow Leaf' is reportedly a sport of 'Sieva' beans and was originally released by W. Atlee Burpee in 1891. He described it as being prolific and differing from all other beans known. Their catalog stated:
". . . . its beautiful deeply cut foliage, aptly described in its name — WILLOW LEAF; by reason of its light, graceful foliage, it is so handsome that many gardeners have pronounced it worthy of growing as an ornamental climbing vine. The leaves are trifoliate, being narrow, not more than half an inch at the broadest part and tapering to a point some five inches. As the leaves are of a rich, dark green color, all pendent, it presents an attractive front. The beauty of the foliage, although such an attraction, is overlooked as soon as it begins to bloom, by reason of the profusion of blossoms, which is astonishing; the vines are full of bloom and later become loaded with pods. The vines blossom and bear pods of uniform size from bottom to top."
Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 60 seeds.
