Lathyrus odoratus is thought to be the original sweet pea, and from this many of today’s cultivars have been developed. It's intensely perfumed with two-tone maroon and purple blooms. It can be trained as cordons on canes for high-quality blooms, or allowed to scramble freely to make a colourful screen. Plants need a cool moist root run, helped by mulching after planting, and regular watering in dry weather. Lathyrus odoratus 'Katie Alice' produces mauve flowers.
