Plant Details

A perennial sweet pea. Looks stunning when flowering. Masses of large, pearly-pink, sweet pea flowers adorn this short climber.

Syn: Lathyrus latifolius 'Pink Pearl'

Lathyrus latifolius has been grown in cottage gardens since the 1600's, when it was introduced from Europe. 'Rosa Perle' is a beautiful pink variety.

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.

Will happily climb a trellis or net but is equally capable of scrambling through a shrub etc. Very vigorous.

Height: 2.5m

Lathyrus is derived from the Greek lathyros, meaning ‘pea’ or ‘pulse’, with latifolius being derived from the Latin latus meaning ‘wide’ andfolium meaning ‘leaf’.


Common name(s): Everlasting Pea

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
