Plant details

Lathyrus odoratus 'White Surpreme' produces white blooms with an excellent fragrance, on long stems. It’s perfect for training up an obelisk or trellis in the garden, and makes an excellent cut flower. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

For best results, grow Lathyrus odoratus 'White Surpreme' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser, and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.
