Very slow to germinate and less copious flowers than I was expecting, but attractive when they finally emerged.

Delighted with these. They are filling out my hanging baskets and the fragrance is of pure honey and the color of a soft watermelon mixed with vanilla ice cream. Gorgeous.
I bought the seedlings, having gotten a late start. They took a bit to get going, but they are catching up quite nicely. I have two lovely little bouquets with the sweet peas with white Cosmos in one bunch, and some sweet peas with a Chandos rose in another.

Lovely

Have grown these in a raised bed surrounding climbing sweet peas. They were really easy to grow from seed and there has been months of flowers. Lovely.

This is the most prolific, healthy sweet pea I have ever grown. Flowers last for a long time and smell gorgeous.
