    Lathyrus clymenum 'Chelsea' - Spanish Pea

    Colour - mauve/lavender bicolour flowers

    Variety - annual

    Scent – nil

    Sow – spring

    Height - approx .5m

    Note: Second photo shows that the tendrils for this plant appear at the end of the leaves. 

    History: Parsons 1996


    Grow: Spring. Sow directly after danger of frost has passed. It is remommond to soak most annual species for 24 hours. However, I haven't had an issue with sowing without soaking. Seeds are sown to a depth of 2cm into moist well-drained soil with a spacing of approximately 8cm. Germination takes 7-21 days.

     

    Note: These flowers are much smaller than the Lathyrus odoratus flowers.and should be deadheaded regularly to prolong the flowering season.
