Description

Sweet Pea:

The colorful and fragrant Sweet Pea is a favorite in home gardens and other informal garden styles. It is most often seen trained up trellises or fences, but can also be planted in containers where it spills over the sides. Sweet peas are climbing plants that bear clusters of flowers in a wide variety of colors including red, pink, blue, white and lavender. They are spring and early summer flowers with beautiful blooms and make excellent cut flowers. The flowers resemble fringed butterflies, while their stems appear to be folded. Luckily, the stems are sturdy enough to hold up their profuse blooms. Sweet peas are often grown on bamboo tripods, but typically they are grown along a trellis or fence as support. Sweet peas also work well in a vegetable garden, attracting bees and other pollinators as needed.
