Flower Production Buckets of ruffled, scented lavender/lilac produced flowers from June to September.
Picking Pick Sweet Peas when the first flower is open and the top two are still in bud. It's best to pick early in the morning or in the cool evening and stand them in deep water for a few hours before arranging. Lasts 5 days in a vase.
