LATHYRUS LATIFOLIUS 'RED PEARL'
Heavy trusses of bright red, fleshy, substantial flowers, open on long, strong stems, which grow for a long time in spring and midsummer on this perpetual, bone hardy, very perennial old favourite. If possible try to plant it where it has good strong climbing support.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
Common name:Perennial Sweet Pea, Everlasting Sweet Pea
