Lathyrus odoratus ‘Painted Lady’ “Sweet Pea”

One of the five original varieties of Sweet Peas grown in the 1700’s, ‘Painted Lady’ is definitely one of the easiest to grow & we are so grateful it retains its original rich sweet scent. Vigorous & heat tolerant, it’ll grow to 8’ tall, bearing hundreds of 1.5” cherry & white bi-colored blooms on 8-10” stems – totally the best for cutting! Self-sows reliably so you never have to go without! Do plant Sweet Peas in rich soil & where the roots are somewhat shaded for best results.
