Description

This deserves to be an icon of spring in more gardens. Spring Vetchling is a beautiful little treasure for the early border. A  low-growing, bushy plant with long, dainty and lush foliage making a hummock covered with many small pea-like flowers. The flowers are two-tone in pink and white with a rosy red base, proving extremely attractive to bees.
