Lathyrus sativus – Azureus (Organic) ***NEW FOR 2024***


A sweet pea relative used as a filler in flower arrangements, with delicate green foliage and small blue flowers. Azureus produces an abundance of delicate and elegant green foliage with feathery tendrils. The flowers are small and odourless, and while the stems are too small to be cut as individual stems, the buds on the cut branches will continue to flower for a week or more if placed in a vase of water.

Very easy to grow and can survive drought conditions.

Sweet Pea tips: You can sow sweet peas into pots in autumn and overwinter them in a cold frame or cool greenhouse. Or you can wait until spring to sow into pots or directly into the ground. They like deep, narrow pots for strong root growth. When they are 10cm tall, pinch out the tops to encourage bushy growth. We recommend dead heading the flowers to keep the plant in bloom for longer.
