Lathyrus vernus

Lathyrus vernus

Known as the spring pea, this is an old cottage garden favourite, grown not surprisingly for its fresh bunches of violet-blue and pink pea flowers. Of immense value in the spring border; growing in either sun or partial shade. 30cm (12"). An easy and very long lived perennial, best left undisturbed. A valuable tip is that you should not try to split this plant - you often end up with no root on anything. Instead you should propagate by seed.
