Lathyrus Odoratus 'Daphne' (Spencer Sweet Pea Seed Daphne)

Lathyrus Odoratus 'Daphne' (Spencer Sweet Pea Seed Daphne)

Top-notch, scented blooms

The clear lavender flowers of this luscious sweet pea are a generous size - just like the more modern varieties; but they have a strong scent, which is reminiscent of the old-fashioned types. This then has the best of both worlds, and we think it is a cracker. Mix it with richer purples and plum tones to great effect. In our (not very scientific) sweet pea trial on the nursery, we found that this variety was similar in colour to Leamington, with a stem length of around 10-12" stem, but not as many flowers. All the sweet-peas in our trial produced significantly better plants when the seeds were sown in autumn rather than spring.
