Lathyrus - Sweet Peas

Native to the Mediterranean region, Lathyrus odorata (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 are relatively easy to grow and deserve a spot in sunny borders, containers, on arches where they will happily twine and release their fabulous scent. Blooming in clusters, they make magnificent cut flowers and great bouquets for your home. Did you know that the more you pick them the more they will continue to flower?
You may also want to try their cousins, the perennial Lathyrus latifolius (Evergreen Pea) or the spectacular Lathyrus splendens (Pride of California). All are full of charm!
