Description

Sweet Pea - Cupid (Heirloom)- Lathyrus odoratus

Perfect for displaying on patios, decks, or in a small gardens, Cupid is a very fragrant heirloom bush sweet pea that looks particularly lovely planted in containers or hanging baskets. Cupid's diminutive vines grow just 8 - 10" tall, then flower in gracefully cascading stems of rose-pink, picotee edged blossoms. These old-fashioned beauties have an ambrosial sweet pea scent that perfumes the air around them. Approximately 30 - 35 seeds per pack.

Soil & Water:Sweet peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot. Little Cupid vines grow just 8 - 10" tall and then cascade over the sides of their containers. Keep well-watered for good growth and remember that potted sweet peas need regular fertilizer. Add time-release granules when planting, or feed plants ever 2 weeks with a liquid fertilizer. Protect young plants from slugs and snails. For longest bloom, remove faded blossoms regularly.

Planting & Growing:Sow seeds directly in deep containers at least 8" in diameter, or rectangular window-boxes at least 6" deep, once danger of frost has passed. Sweet peas grow best in cool weather and can handle light frosts. Fill planting containers with well-moistened, good quality potting soil and plant seeds 1" deep and 2 - 3" apart. When seedlings are 2" tall, thin to about 3 - 4" apart. In mild winter climates, plant in fall weather to overwinter for spring bloom.
