Lathyrus 'White Supreme'

Plant details

Lathyrus, known as sweet peas grow as climbers, low spreading plants or as shrubs. Given stakes or wires to attach to, climbers support themselves, using tendrils to wrap around as they grow. Non-climbing perennials tolerate partial shade, while all others require a sunny position to grow well. For best results, grow in moist but well drained soil. Lathyrus 'White Surpreme' produces white blooms and has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
