An antique silk, stippled new variety of sweet pea which looks as beautiful freshly open as when the flowers fade.
Good scent, and impressive stem and flower production. Outstanding in our trials at Perch Hill. 8/10 scent.
Remove the climbing tendrils as they grow. Tie the stem into your framework on a regular basis. Can be grown in deep container pots up a climbing frame. Find out how to cordon train your sweet pea in Sarah's how-to guide.
