Sweet Pea High Scent Seeds

Lathyrus odoratus

Item #1237

Annual. We haven’t yet found a sweet pea with a more delicious scent. Even a single stem fills the air with a sweet, fresh fragrance. Developed for beauty and scent, the soft cream-colored flowers have a delicate lavender edge that is further enhanced by the ruffled petals. The tall vines produce several long stems of large sweet pea flowers that are ideal for cutting.
