This is the original sweet pea from which most other sweet peas are descended. It is the most fragrant sweet pea ever with 3-4 purple/blue bicolor flowers per stem. It was introduced more than 300 years ago. Plant in ordinary but fertile soil in a sheltered sunny location, water freely and mulch to keep the roots cool. Remove the faded blooms promptly. Most sweet peas need support to climb up or a low wall to grow over. Direct seed in autumn or spring. Soak seeds overnight before sowing. The seeds are toxic.
