Beaujolais is a lovely pea, Aster. I sowed some last year but the compost wasn't right and they rotted in our wet weather. I had a couple of seeds left which I sowed and they're flowering now. I love those dark, rich colours.
I've grown Juliet this year, as I like a cream or white to stand out against darker planting, but they're a bit disappointing. Supposed to be white, but they're creamy. Scent is excellent, but they're 'muddy'. I had Cathy a few years ago which was a little muddy too, but it was very floriferous and a wonderful scent, so I think I'll try it again if I can source it. I tried two whites last year, and although they were very white, they weren't such good growers and the scent wasn't brilliant. Our weather probably had a little to do with that though. You win some....
Weather has such an influence BL, doesn't it?
