Lathyrus odoratus

With early blooming flowers and the most beautiful color range, our Explorer is the best short, non-climbing sweet pea, perfect for beds and borders. The bushy 2 1/2 foot plants soon bear beguiling, dainty winged blossoms with exquisite honeyed fragrance in entrancing rich hues of deep rose, lavender, salmon, mid-blue, rose crimson, pink, scarlet and white. Flower stems are long enough to cut for long lasting perfumed bouquets.

EASIEST TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds directly in the spring garden in full sun as early as the ground can be worked. Sweet peas grow best in cool weather and seedlings can handle frost. In mild winter areas, where ground does not freeze, seeds can be planted in fall weather for spring bloom. Sweet peas need rich fertile soil, so dig soil deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost before planting seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 3 inches apart.

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 4 to 5 inches apart when they are 2 inches tall, allowing room for plants to mature.

GROWING NOTES

Sweet peas bloom best before summer heat, so if spring planting, sow as early as possible. In hot summer areas, choose a spot that gets some afternoon shade. Protect seedlings from birds, slugs and snails. Non-climbing Explorer needs no supports and can be planted along a walk or in flower borders or beds. Mulch and keep vines well watered. For longest bloom keep faded blossoms cut.
