Lathyrus annuus 'Mrs R Penney' - Fodder Pea

Colour - orange

Variety - annual

Scent – nil

Sow – spring

Height - approx 1m

Note: One of the earliest annual species to flower.

History: Grayson 1997

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 has 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.
