description for "Sweet Peas: Lathyrus odoratus 'North Shore'"

This standout Royal Horticultural Society award winner is a stunning example of combining the fragrance of old fashioned varieties with the beautiful frilled form of modern exhibition sweet-peas. 'North Shore' has luminous bicolor blossoms with big, ruffled petals in stained-glass colors of richest claret and violet blue. These top performing, long-stemmed flowers are sweetly perfumed and elegantly formed. 'North Shore' will become the highlight of your late spring and early summer garden and yield exquisite scented bouquets. 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. Anchor climbing supports well as these vines will grow dense and heavy with bloom. Be vigilant about protecting seedlings from birds, slugs and snails, especially if fall planting. Mulch and keep well-watered. For longest bloom, pick flowers often and keep faded blossoms cut. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
