Vining Lathyrus Odoratus Bicolor Blue Ripple Sweet Peas Seeds

Bicolor Sweet Pea (Lathyrus Odoratus Bicolor Blue Ripple) – A beautiful, strong growing variety with rippling ice white petals marbled in a most unusual shade of blue. The deeply scented flowers of Sweet Pea ‘Blue Ripple’ are carried atop long, straight stems that are make them ideal for a fragrant bouquet. Plants produce 3 – 4 blooms per 9 – 12 inches of stem. Spencer Series sweet peas are known as late flowering because they require at least 12 hours of daylight, unlike more modern sweet pea varieties bred for winter production, which may require only 10 – 11 hours of daylight.

For best germination, Sweet Pea seeds need to be scarified before sowing. Nicking the seed with a nail clipper breaks the outer coat so they can absorb water immediately. By doing this a larger percentage of the seeds will germinate and they will sprout a few days earlier. After nicking the seed, soak the Sweet Peas seeds over night in tepid water. Do this the night before sowing the flower seeds directly outside.

Sweet Pea, ‘Wiltshire Ripple’

(L. sativus) Wonderfully fragrant blooms boast elegant bright chocolate/burgundy flecking and picoteed edges on a creamy white background. A Spencer type with long cutting stems and deep fragrance, Wiltshire ripple was one of the first sweet peas I really fell hard for, discovered in a British garden magazine, and then grown on our farm about 5 years ago where it took our breath away. Since then we have had an almost comedic string of 5 years of failures with sourcing and producing seed, (mislabeled seeds one year from a company that generously replaced it the next year with. more mislabeled seeds, imported seeds seized and destroyed in US customs…). So, forgive us for feeling rather triumphant in offering it. After all that you are sure to love it too!
