Lathyrus odoratus
'Solstice Crimson'

Lathyrus odoratus Solstice Crimson

The earliest bloomer of the bunch! Brilliant crimson blooms laugh in the face of short Winter days and happily flower from late Winter right thru July! It’s so gratifying to bring brilliant color to your garden before most plants can manage to even bud. But don’t worry if you’ve missed out on early planting - you can plant it any time you would other sweet peas. Super easy to grow, it vines from 3-5’ on a trellis or any helpful support, provides arm loads of fragrant bouquets, attracts hummingbirds and bees and is one of the absolute staples of any cottage garden. If, like most gardeners, you are antsy to get your garden going early you’ll want to get ‘Solstice Crimson’ sweet pea planted now!
