Lathyrus odoratus A/24"-30"
Knee Hi Sweet Pea is perfect for pots, window boxes, spilling from hanging baskets or low bushy hedges that are barely knee-high. Multi-colored flowers carried on 12" stems so while plants are knee-high, relatively long stemmed flowers are suitable for cutting. Early and profuse bloomer.
Planting Directions: Where climate will permit, sow seed from late Summer to early Winter for Spring flowering. Plant in spring as weather and soil conditions permit. Plant seed in a trench 6” deep, about 1” apart. Cover with 1” of soil. Plant in full sun in well drained soil. When plants are well established, fill up the trench gradually until ground surface is level. Thin climbing varieties to 6” apart. Bush varieties to 3” apart. Begin training the vining varieties on strings when 6-8” tall. Bush varieties need no staking or support.
