Most Fragrant Sweet Peas

From a fragrance standpoint, not all sweet peas are equal. Some exude a faint scent, others are well scented, and some are intensely fragrant. According to researchers, the fragrance of sweet peas is determined by six major components and 12 minor ones. This is the combination of these major ingredients with the minor ones, which grants sweet peas their delightful perfume.

Lathyrus odoratus (Sweet Pea)

Native to the Mediterranean region, Lathyrus odoratus (Sweet Pea) is a bushy or climbing annual noted for the delicious scent of its lovely flowers. Blooming in a wide array of enchanting colors, Sweet Peas deserve a spot in sunny borders, containers, on arches and trellises where they will happily twine and release their fabulous scent.
