Lathyrus odoratus 'King Edward VII'
King Edward VII, introduced in 1903,is an annual sweet pea with beautiful, strongly-scented crimson flowers. Although it is described by the experts as crimson we think there is a good slug of magenta in these bright flowers. Over 100 years later this fantastic sweet pea is still good enough to be awarded an AGM by the Royal Horticultural Society and worth growing in our garden each year.
