Lathyrus Odoratus Spring Sunshine Peach
Who can possibly get enough of these abundantly fragrant light pink flowers? The more flowers you pick, the more this plant will produce. Remember, if your house is already full of these delightful blooms, you will surely make someone else happy with a bunch. The annual summer flower is also called sweet pea for its delightful, sweet fragrance. Lathyrus Odoratus flowers abundantly and produces long stems. It is a self-adhesive climber that prefers to be planted against mesh fences or trellises. This variety is particularly beautiful when combined with the white Royal White variety.

Annual flower seeds
All our flower seeds produce flowers that are suitable for use as cut flowers. They are also used by professional nurseries and floriculture companies. For flower seeds to be considered high-quality, they need to have outstanding germination capacity and energy and therefore yield a high percentage of flowering plants. All seeds are annuals, which means that they have a lot of growing power: they go through all the stages – from a seed to a flowering plant that, in turn, produces new seeds – in the space of just one season. Most flowers bloom for about three to five months. A rule of thumb in this is that the more flowers you pick, the faster they will grow back! All our seeds are untreated and uncoated, and are also suitable as starting material for growing organic flowers.
- Plant in moist soil to which the seeds stick for best germination.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil of approx. 2 cm.
- Grow in fertile, well-drained soil.
- Give them a sunny spot and sufficient protection from strong winds. Support if necessary.
- Water regularly.
As darkness is required for germination, make sure to cover them with 1 to 2 cm of soil. Pinching out the lead shoots will make the plants bushier, while removing the side shoots will make them grow longer stems with larger flowers. Pick the flowers when there are still at least two unopened flowers left at the top. Put them in water with cut flower food and they will last five to six days. They should not be placed in more than 3 to 4 cm of the water.
