Lathyrus latifolius 'Pearl Mixed' Seeds

Perennial Sweet Peas are vigorous plants with strong stems and plenty of beautiful flowers. Pearl Mixed has blooms in all shades of pink and white. Buds are pale green-yellow opening to sugar pink, deep pink/magenta red and pure white. Flowers are very similar to annual Sweet Peas however these evergreen Sweet Peas have no scent. They are still great for cut flowers though!

Lathyrus latifolius are brilliant plants for beginners because they are very easy to grow and super productive giving you an excellent show in the garden and masses of flowers for picking. What's more they are perennial. Cut the evergreen foliage back after flowering (either in autumn or spring) and they'll regrow to flower again next year. Awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the RHS.
