    Hi Helen – Is it a relation to sweet peas? Lovely.

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      Hi Yvonne, its a perennial sweet pea so comes up every year. Well hopefully I only bought it this weekend

    Lovely, love sweetpeas

    It is the most gorgeous colour, just like the crimson red in a Persian carpet. Another one for the wish list. I’m going to have to get a bigger garden or get rid of more grass.

    Beautiful. I’ve had a pink one from a dear relative for many, many years, but this red is fantastic.

    I have seen a very small purple/white sweet pea here, more ground cover. I think very old as in Mt Eden an old suburb in Auckland. Dr Keith Hammett breeds sweet peas here and is World renowned. Love them – haven’t really go anywhere to plant them here – boo hoo – well maybe that needs rethinking!
