Lathyrus odoratus ‘Cupani’
“Heirloom Sweet Pea"

Lathyrus odoratus ‘Cupani’ “Heirloom Sweet Pea" Lathyrus odoratus 'Cupani' "Heirloom Sweet Pea"

History & scentual pleasure! ‘Cupani’ was first cultivated by a Sicilian monk, Father Francis Cupani, who found this intensely scented wild sweet pea growing near his monastery in 1695. In 1699, he sent some seeds to a teacher in England & so ‘Cupani’ is the first recorded Sweet Pea to be cultivated. Though the beautiful deep purple-blue & violet bi-colored blooms are smaller than modern hybrids, ‘Cupani’ retains the original fabulous fragrance loved by Father Francis. No other sweet peas are this fragrant. Besides that, they will BLOOM LONGER in warmer weather than all the others. Rich Soil is best for Sweet Peas. Fine for containers, too. Reseeds!
