Sweet Peas are cheerful and incredibly fragrant, and produce tons of the sweetest little blooms. The old-fashioned charm of these flowers is amplified by the unique varieties we have sourced.
Azureus Sweet Peas are an otherworldly blue, with the occasional rose tinged throat on their tiny blooms. The little flowers glimmer on the vine, with an almost tropical look to them. This variety is unusually drought and heat tolerant. They are also unique in that they have no fragrance (unusual for a Sweet Pea!) and they don't need trellising, as they grow only 2-3' tall. You can give them something to grow up for a tidier look, but they can also grow without it, and Azureus Sweet Pea lovely draping out of a container or the edge of the garden.
