Flower of the Month

April- Sweet Pea

Perennial Sweet Pea flowers in the summer and has large flowers of red, white, pink, purple, blue, and yellow. The flowers of the Perennial Sweet Pea are not fragrant; however, the Annual Sweet Pea (L.odoratus) is fragrant.

The Sweet Pea can grow on trellises and fences and likes full sun and a well-drained soil. The meaning of Sweet Pea is blissful pleasure. The sweet pea is popularly known as the "Queen of Annuals". The name "sweet pea" is believed to have first been used by the poet Keats (1795-1821).

Sweet pea flowers naturally self-pollinates, while still in bud. They are not edible, being somewhat poisonous if eaten in quantity. They come in a large range of colors, but not yellow.
