FLOWERS – SWEET PEA PAINTED LADY
Flowers – Sweet Pea Painted Lady
The first ever bicolor sweet pea, & the first named sweet pea cultivar still with us from its discovery in 1737! Painted Lady is a beautiful rose, pastel pink & cream bicolor that is deliciously scented & heat tolerant. Begins flowering early & it will grow to 2.5 m tall, bearing hundreds of 3 cm bi-colored blooms on 20 -25 cm strong stems. An excellent garden performer, adaptable to most well-drained garden soils but avoid waterlogging the soil. This variety dates to 1737 and was planted by Jefferson at Monticello in the early 1800s.
Sow outdoors. Germinate at 20-30°C on the surface of a free draining, damp seed compost, 3 seeds per 7.5cm pot then apply a layer of compost 1cm deep. Place in a polythene bag until after germination.
