Point Reyes Mix Sweet Pea - Lathyrus odoratus
A native to Europe, these sweet flowers reached their peak in popularity in the late 1880’s. In Edwardian England they were often considered the floral emblem. In the language of flowers, sweet peas represent blissful pleasure, good-bye and thank you for a lovely time. Commonly associated with the month of April.
Blooming into colors such as rose, salmon, purple, white, lavender and pink. In mild climates the ideal season to plant sweet peas is in the fall, this allows for a strong root system to develop. If planting in the spring, seeds should be planted as early as possible in the season. In areas with harsh winters, wait to sow one month before last frost.
Mulch if spring tends to be hot and humid.
