Lathyrus odoratus 'Captain of the Blues'
Deservedly one of our most popular sweet peas, Captain of the Blues is an annual heritage Sweet Pea with well-scented blue/purple flowers. The bushy growth and huge number of flowers makes this a particularly good garden variety and the smallish flowers have a great scent.
