This rarely seen perennial sweet pea comes from the Taurus Mountains and has wonderful golden orange flowers.
Easier to grow than annual sweet peas and you have the advantage that it comes back year after year. It's herbaceous, so dies back to the ground in winter and springs back to life in March.
Unlike most sweet peas it's not a climber, but throws up numerous self supporting flowering stems to a height of about 60cm.
Height and spread: 60cm x 90cm
Lathyrus is derived from the Greek lathyros, meaning 'pea' or 'pulse', with latifolius being derived from the Latin latus meaning 'wide' and folium meaning 'leaf'.
Common name(s): The Wood Pea; Everlasting Pea; Narrow-leaved everlasting pea
