Sweet Pea 'Karen Louise' Seeds

Long strong stems, a light, delicate scent and plenty of beautiful lavender ruffled flowers are characteristics of Karen Louise Sweet Peas. Buds and newly opened flowers are deep lilac which gradually fade as the blooms age. It's a popular Sweet Pea for all the right reasons. If you are a lover of vintage colours or you are growing your own wedding flowers then Karen Louise provides a delicious contrast to white and cream blooms and may be right up your street.

Sweet Peas are brilliant plants for beginners. They are very easy to grow and super productive giving you masses of flowers for picking. Loved by flower farmers for their long stems and sophisticated blooms, Karen Louise is also good for a sunny spot in your garden and is an excellent choice for exhibiting at your local flower show.
