Lathyrus Odoratus

  • Sweet pea is a bushy or climbing annual that features highly fragrant flowers (odoratus meaning fragrant) on winged stems clad with medium to dark green leaflets in pairs.

  • Closely related to the exceptionally fragrant wild sweet pea found in late spring hedgerows in Sicily and Southern Italy.
  • It has small flowers and short stems, but the perfume will fill a room.
  • This sweet pea became available in the late 17th century when a Sicilian monk, Brother Francis Cupani, sent seeds of this highly fragrant annual to Dr. Robert Uvedale, a teacher from Enfield, Middlesex.
  • 2 metres in height. Dead head regualarly to ensure a continuous display of blooms.
