Sweet Pea Cupid Pink HEIRLOOM Seeds

Sweet Pea Cupid Pink HEIRLOOM Seeds

Lathyrus odoratus

Item #1206

Annual. Cupid type sweet peas were originally bred over 100 years ago. Their dwarf, bushy form makes them well suited to containers and borders. A great variety able to withstand heat and drought better than any other sweet pea we've grown. We chose Cupid after observing how well it performed in a local university’s water-wise landscape design study. For striking color combinations, grow Cupid Pink with burgundy-foliage plants such as coleus, sweet potato vine or hyacinth bean vine — you’ll fall in love!
