description for "Sweet Peas: Lathyrus odoratus 'Queen of the Night'"

'Queen of the Night' is a custom sweet-pea seed mix from Renee's Seeds, providing a stunning display of heritage sweet-peas in deep shades reminiscent of a midsummer's eve. Included are 'Captain of the Blues' (mauve-blue), 'Cupani' (bicolor blossoms of maroon and lilac), 'Lord Nelson' (deep blue), 'King Edward VII' (deepest crimson) and 'Miss Willmott' (salmon-pink). Their vines with rich colored blossoms will cloak a fence or arbor and provide luminous bouquets with an ambrosial perfume. Sweet-peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as early as possible, especially in regions where summer heat comes on fast. Anchor climbing supports well as these vines will grow dense and heavy with bloom. Be sure to protect seedlings from birds, slugs and snails, especially if fall planting. Mulch and keep well-watered for best flower production. For longest bloom, pick flowers often and keep faded blossoms cut. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
