(Lathyrus sativus azureus)
EXCLUSIVE - We are proud to make this rare and unusual species sweet pea available for home gardeners. The dainty little flowers are an exquisite glowing blue color, some with rose-touched throats. The abundant singly born blossoms shine out like jewels against lushly tangled grassy foliage and gently curling tendrils. This long-blooming vining beauty reaches 3-4 feet tall and makes a wonderful garden accent in big pots with a short trellis, tumbling over a low wall or scrambling enticingly up a fence.
Seed Count: 20-25 / Weight: 3.5 gms

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

Sweet peas need well-drained soil. Dig deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost. Sow seeds 1 inch deep and 3 inches apart in full sun as soon as ground can be worked in early spring. Erect a sturdy support for the short vines before planting. In mild winter areas, where the ground doesn’t freeze, plant in fall; seeds will germinate and form strong root systems, then overwinter to bloom strongly in spring. For container planting, use containers at least 12 inches in diameter filled with good quality, well-moistened potting soil. Plant seeds 1 inch deep and 3 inches apart. In summer heat, container sweet peas do best in a spot with afternoon shade. When plants have 3 or 4 sets of leaves pinch them back so just 2 sets remain. This encourages full, bushy growth.

 

GROWING NOTES

Sweet peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as soon as ground can be worked. Be sure to protect seedlings from their most common predators: birds, slugs and snails, especially if fall planting. Mulch, keep well watered and feed plants regularly. Container grown sweet peas should be fertilized every 2 weeks for best bloom.
