Lathyrus odoratus
'Annie B. Gilroy'

"Sweet Pea"

Blessed with vibrant cerise colored flowers and exceptionally strong fragrance, this heirloom sweet pea bred by Henry Eckford, (1907) also boasts heat tolerance and a long bloom season. Like the original cultivated sweat pea, Lathyrus ‘Cupani’ it can be planted as late as April or May. The flowers are a bit smaller like the original species but the deliciously sweet old-time scent is more than a fair trade-off. BEST cut flowers, self-sows to return each year! To 8’ tall. Rich soil, please! Plant in Fall through Spring in mild winter climates. Self sows.
