PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

An unusual species sweet pea, the small, unscented flowers are green-yellow. I often grow them up loose wigwams made from buddelia sticks inserted into large tubs, underplanted with lobelia, small antirrhinums and perhaps a lantana in the middle. They are also happy scrambling up trellis.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Nick the seed coating and sow in spring under glass, half an inch deep (sweet peas need darkness to aid germination) in pots of compost, either singly, or several to a 3in pot, to be pricked out later. Keep moist. Pinch out growing tips when 3 or 4 true leaves have formed. Plant out in a sunny position in rich, moist, soil or compost, providing support in the form of wigwams or netting (unless you wish to treat them as a trailing plant in baskets). Much could be said on the subject of sweet pea growing, but I will mention only the bare bones here - that sweet peas need humus-rich soil, moisture, sunshine and feeding, and regular picking or dead-heading to encourage repeat flowering. Much more information can be found elsewhere online for those who wish to research the subject more thoroughly.
