SWEET PEA SEEDS

Lathyrus odoratus

How to plant Sweet Pea seeds

One of America's favorite annuals, sweet peas give you bright, fragrant flowers magnificent for cutting. While all sweet peas prefer cool weather, Old Spice and Mammoth Mix show remarkable resistance to heat.

Climbing sweet peas are supported by trellises, nets, or strings. We enjoy sweet peas most when vines are rambling over shrubs, which creates an authentic cottage garden look.

Dwarf sweet peas do not climb and are perfect for containers, beds and borders. Flowers are frequently held on stems long enough cutting.

CLIMBING SWEET PEAS

Sweet Pea Erewhon New for 2018 VN18001

ERE­WHON Sweet Pea Seeds

Bicolor sweet peas have always had darker upper petals than lower petals. Erewhon, a true reverse bicolor sweet pea, changes our notion of what a bicolor sweet pea can be. The deep lavender blue lower petals (wings) are darker than soft pink upper petals (standards).

The highly fragrant, colorful flowers are held on long, strong stems. Erewhon sweet peas make impressive sweetly scented bouquets. Plants grow 6-8 ft. tall.

Erewhon sweet pea is a cross of Lathyrus odoratus and the strongly fragrant L. belinensis, first discovered in Turkey 30 years ago.
