Description

Large clusters of sizeable lavender-mauve flowers which sadly are not fragrant, make excellent cut flowers and are good on dry sunny slopes. A relative of the annual Sweet Pea, this bone-hardy perennial will sprawl over the available space or form a solid clump of dark green leaves smothered in flowers. Can be clipped back hard after flowering to prevent spread through self-seeding.

Sowing Advice

Sow autumn in cold greenhouse or late winter/early spring in warm greenhouse, propagator or windowsill for late spring planting. Alternatively sow outdoors March-April.
