Lathyrus Odoratus 'Gwendoline' (Spencer Sweet Pea Gwendoline)

Lathyrus Odoratus 'Gwendoline' (Spencer Sweet Pea Gwendoline)

Cream-flushed-pink blooms

Creamy-white petals, which look like they have been dipped in pink icing sugar, form luscious sprays of flowers that appear in profusion in summer. This headily-scented variety looks great scrambling over an obelisk or sprawling over a hospitable, neighbouring shrub. Cut the flowers to fill your home with perfume, or leave them outside for the bees buzz about. In our (not very scientific) sweet pea trial on the nursery, we found that this variety had very pretty

  • Flower colour and was highly scented. There were not too many flowers left in August, and what there was had a stem length of around 6 - 8". All the sweet-peas in our trial produced significantly better plants when the seeds were sown in autumn rather than spring.
