Sweet Pea - Painted Lady (Heirloom) - Lathyrus odoratus
Annual - RoseDating back to 1737, Painted Lady was the very first named sweet pea cultivar, the result of a natural color mutation from the original purple Italian species to a beautiful rose, pastel pink and cream bicolor. Heat-tolerant and deliciously scented, Painted Lady begins flowering early on vigorous vines that stretch and grow as the season continues. Bring the continuity of centuries to your garden by growing these heavenly scented flowers, treasured in the cottage gardens of our great-grandmothers.
Soil Temperature: above 50°F Planting Depth: 1" Germination: 12-28 Days Height At Maturity: 6-8 feet Sun/Shade: Full to Partial Sun Spacing After Thinning: 4-5" Approx Seeds per Pack: 30-35 Seeds

Soil & Water: Sweet peas must have well-drained soil, so dig deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost before sowing seeds. Water well and mulch as vines grow.
Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in full sun in cool early spring weather (as early as the ground can be worked). In mild winter climates, where the ground does not freeze, sweet peas can be planted in the fall. Erect a well-anchored trellis, fence, or vertical netting for these climbing vines before planting seeds. Seedlings will form strong root systems, then overwinter to bloom vigorously in the spring. Plant seeds 1" deep and 2 - 3" apart. When seedlings are 2" tall, thin to 4 - 5" apart to allow plants room to mature.
Sweet peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot. Where summer heat comes on fast, they'll appreciate a spot with afternoon shade. Anchor supports well as vies will grow heavy with bloom. Protect seedlings from birds, slugs, and snails. Mulch and keep well-watered. For longest bloom, pick flowers often and keep faded blossoms cut.
Whether you intend to send someone a secret message with your bouquet, or just enjoy the color and scent as you pass by a trellis full of sweet peas, this heirloom bloom is a perfect addition to every garden... Read More
