I found quite a few varieties at Swallowtail Garden Seeds. From Swallowtail I ordered
- Flora Norton – soft mauve and
- Mrs. Collier – white and
- Queen Alexandria – pink-scarlet
- Lord Nelson – dark blue and
- Henry Eckford – orange and
My plan is to grow 3 plants of each kind and plant them on each side of a 12 foot row. That is enough plants to have lots and lots of cut sweet peas in late June and into July. When the hot weather hits the stems get shorter and shorter so the entire season is only about 3-4 weeks but the house sure smells great while they last.
