EXCLUSIVE - Day-length neutral Elegance sweet peas are specially bred to reliably bloom several weeks earlier than any other sweet pea. Our strikingly beautiful Velvet Elegance showcases a trio of new colors; rich dark maroon, deep violet-blue and full crimson-red. These large and beautifully formed ruffled flowers bloom on vigorous long stems and the effect of their vivid colors in the landscape or in bouquets is completely arresting; like a royal velvet tapestry.

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

Sweet peas must have well drained soil, so dig deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost before sowing seeds. Erect a well-anchored trellis, vertical netting or other support for vines before planting. Sow seeds in full sun in cool early spring weather as early as the ground can be worked. In mild winters, where ground does not freeze, sweet peas can be planted in fall. Seedlings will form strong root systems, then overwinter to bloom vigorously in spring. Plant sweet pea seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 3 inches apart. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin to 4 inches apart to allow plants room to mature.

GROWING NOTES

Sweet peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as soon as ground can be worked. Where summer heat comes on fast, they’ll appreciate a spot with afternoon shade. Anchor supports well as vines will grow heavy with bloom. Protect seedlings from birds, slugs and snails. Mulch and keep well watered. For longest bloom, pick flowers often and keep faded blossoms cut.
