My scarlet runner beans are looking pretty dismal. I have looked in many places on the web for insight on what may be going on. All of the pictures of these vines on the internet show a lot of leaves, looking green and lush. Mine is certainly not like that. There have been times I have has a lush bush of leaves, but then they seem to turn brown, dry up and fall.
As you can see by the two pictures above. These were taken 20 days apart. Now the same area that was green and full, is all dried, dead leaves.
Comparing the earlier 3 pictures to the ones I took today.
You can see the brown on the mature leaves. I was thinking it was some type of disease, but I know very little about that type of thing.
I hope someone can give me some insight. It seems like I am going to lose the whole bunch. Although this is not a huge issue, I had hoped to have a nice vine in that corner for the summer, to lure in honey bees, humming birds and the like.
