Three of my favorite @david_austin_roses.  The palest one is ‘Jude the Obscure’ and extremely fragrant.  The pink one is ‘Princess Alexandra of Kent’ and the orange toned one is ‘Lady of Shalott’.‘Candyfloss’ sweet pea is abundantly blooming right now and so pretty don’t you think 😊So wonderfully scented!  I really like this early blooming sweet pea delightfully named ‘Pandemonium’. This is a virtual mothers’ day bouquet for all mothers out there 😀Pretty Lilac Ripple sweet pea flowers.  Delectable scent too even on a hot day like today.  Happy sweet pea season 😍Welcoming ‘Wiltshire Ripple’ sweet pea. I’m really liking this one.  Ever so lightly scented and nice long stems if you want to display in a vase.This sweet pea is so fragrant that it stops me in my tracks every time I hurry past. ‘Strawberry Fields’ is an early bloomer and has been showing off its beauty for a few weeks now.The ethereal ‘Turquoise Lagoon’ sweet pea just starting to unveil itself here at @sweetpeagardens.  It’s one of those color changing varieties.  Can you see the difference between the flowers? Quite lovely 😊Peonies and viburnum both bloom around the same time as sweet peas.  These are  two of my favorite colors together - the acid green and pink just seem to hug each other ❤️

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.
