Sweet Pea – Lathyrus odoratus
These beautiful, old-timey flowers are some of the most welcome sights of spring, producing until summer scorching temps soar. Ours are a mostly purple localized strain that’s been growing 4-6′ tall vines with garish petals and a pleasant fragrance for decades. Will self-sow if you let them! Open-pollinated.
Directions: Soak seeds for 24 hrs to speed germination. Direct seed in spring, or seed indoors and transplant late spring. Space 8″ apart; provide a fence or trellis.
