Plant details

This is one of the darkest blue sweet peas around. It bears up to five large, wavy blooms on long, slender stems, making it excellent as a cut flower. It has a wonderful fragrance that pervades the air. If you support this climber and feed it regularly when it comes into flower, it will give you a superb garden performance. Choose a feed high in potassium.
