Lathyrus Odoratus 'Oxford Blue' (Spencer Sweet Pea Seed Oxford Blue)


Lathyrus Odoratus 'Oxford Blue' (Spencer Sweet Pea Seed Oxford Blue)

A striking dark blue form


The colour of these fragrant blue blooms intensifies as they age, providing a very pretty contrast to the greyish-green leaves. Sweet peas are a cottage garden favourite and look wonderful when allowed to scramble over a wigwam of brushwood where they will get sun for the best part of the day. In our (not very scientific) sweet pea trial on the nursery, we found that the flowers of this variety had a slight fragrance and were held on 6 - 8" stems. There were not too many left in August though. All the sweet-peas in our trial produced significantly better plants when the seeds were sown in autumn rather than spring.
