description for "Sweet Peas: Lathyrus odoratus 'Jewels of Albion'"

This custom sweet-pea seed mix from Renee's Seeds provides a blended color palette of especially fragrant antique varieties, offering both beautiful cool shades and plants with significantly more heat tolerance than other sweet-pea varieties. You'll have a succession in bloom with 'Flora Norton' (pastel blue), 'Lord Nelson' (deep blue), 'Mrs. Collier' (creamy white), 'Lady Grisel Hamilton' (pastel lavender) and 'Captain of the Blues' (mauve-blue). This lovely perfumed mix blooms on strong climbing vines that easily cover a trellis or fence. Sweet-peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as soon as the ground can be worked, especially in regions where summer heat comes on fast. Be vigilant about protecting seedlings from birds, slugs and snails, especially if fall planting. Mulch and keep well-watered for best flower production. Remove faded blossoms for longest bloom. These fragrant, old-fashioned varieties will bloom in a lovely succession, showing off their entire color range. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
