(Lathyrus odoratus)
EXCLUSIVE - These charming sweet peas will delight flower lovers with their unusual patterned blossoms. Each large flower is uniquely “flaked,” showing finely rippled veins of color that swirl throughout the pastel background of the petals. We’ve blended a mix of delectable color tints so you’ll have blue, maroon, chocolate, burnt orange, crimson red and rich purple swirled flowers all from the same packet. A handful of these long blooming, intricately marked blooms makes delightful softly-scented centerpiece bouquets.

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

Sweet peas must have well-drained soil, so dig deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost before sowing seeds. Erect a well-anchored trellis, vertical netting or other support for vines before planting. Sow seeds in full sun in cool early spring weather as early as the ground can be worked.

In mild winters, where ground does not freeze, sweet peas can be planted in fall. Seedlings will form strong root systems, then overwinter to bloom vigorously in spring. Plant sweet pea seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 3 inches apart. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin to 4-5 inches apart to allow plants room to mature.


GROWING NOTES

Sweet peas bloom best when they flower before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as early as possible, especially in regions where summer heat comes on fast. Anchor climbing supports well as these vines will grow dense and heavy with bloom. Protect seedlings from birds, slugs and snails. Mulch and keep well watered for best flower production. For longest bloom, remove faded blossoms regularly.
