description for "Sweet Peas: Lathyrus odoratus 'Color Palette Cupid'"

'Color Palette Cupid' is a lovely color mix from Renee's Seeds of fragrant bush sweet-peas perfect to grow in outdoor containers to decorate your patio, deck or any small space garden area. These diminutive vines grow just 8 to 10 inches tall, then the sweetly scented big flowers bloom happily on softly cascading branches. Fill up your containers with this special blend of all the 'Cupid' cultivars. You'll have plants with blossoms in rose-pink and white, soft lavender, shell pink, and deep purple. Sweet-peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot. When seedlings have 3 to 4 sets of leaves, pinch off top set to encourage branching for a bushy full plant. Young plants will grow 8 to 10 inches tall, then cascade over the sides of containers. It's critical to keep your container sweet peas well-watered and remember to fertilize them regularly every two weeks with liquid fertilizer solution. Protect plants from slugs and snails. For longest bloom, remove faded blossoms regularly. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
