Description

An unusual and excellent small, non-climbing pea for shady conditions, this dwarf one is quite distinct from the more commonly seen Lathyrus vernus, the long, darker-veined, reddish purple flowers opening in a one-sided head on small, domed clumps in early spring.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
