#sweetpeas  #lathyrusodoratus  #seedstarting  #rootrainersThese are amazing gloves if your hands start to go numb at the thought of planting in cold and wet soil (as mine do!). Reasonably priced - before and after shot (after one year of use). #WellsLamont #gardeninggloves #hydrahydeWho's starting their sweet pea seeds this week?  I'm thinking about spring already!  Get out those hardy annual seeds and get planting :)

The Sweet Pea

The sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus) is a flowering plant within the genus Lathyrus in the family Fabaceae (legumes). It is native to Sicily, Cyprus, southern Italy and the Aegean Islands.

It is an annual climbing plant, growing to a height of 3 ft – 6 ft when supported on a trellis or other structure . The leaves have tendrils which twine around supporting structures, helping the sweet pea to climb. In the wild, the flowers produced by the sweet pea plant are purple and smaller than the flowers seen in cross-bred and developed cultivars.
