Description

A sweet pea to knock your socks off - it truly is lagoon blue and has fantastic scent. The flowers start mauve and morph to turquoise as they age. Scent 9/10.

Care Tips

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.
