sweet pea flowers

This site is devoted to information about sweet peas and other Lathyrus species. The intention is to cover a wide range of subject matter from the trivial to the technical.

Recent additions include additions to the section on Lathyrus species, concentrating on those species about which there is much confusion and mis-information such as Lathyrus magellanicus, and an account of the differences between the sweet pea varieties 'Matucana' and 'Cupani Original'.

The picture at the side of the page is of Cherub™ Dwarf Mixed. Seed of these exclusive sweet pea varieties can be purchased from the new Owl's Acre Seeds website, which features an integrated shopping cart and secure online payment system.
