Sweet Pea – Heirloom Mix


Sweet Peas are a fragrant climbing annual with a height of about 2 ft.  This mix is a variety of old-fashion heirloom favorites of pink, purple, lavender, white, red and salmon colors.  They are a great cut flower to add color and fragrance to any room or garden.  Sweet Peas do well in areas with cooler weather.  Here in the Northwest U.S. plant before May for best results.  Vines may die in excessive heat.  Plant in full sun to partial shade. You can start these seeds in trays and transplant them.  With a trellis or something to grow up sweet peas can get as tall as 4 or 5 ft.  Having lots of nectar and pollen they are great for attracting honeybees, bumble bees and native bees.

If you garden in the Southern USA mild winter climates in zones 8, 9, or 10 plant sweet peas in the late fall (November) so they can bloom in late winter /early spring.

Note: Do not plant these near edible peas.  All parts of this plant are poisonous if eaten.  (If enough is consumed it may cause a condition called lathyrism, which can cause paralysis, shallow breathing, and convulsions).
