Sweet Pea 'Purple Pimpernel'


Lathyrus odoratus 'Purple Pimpernel'

Purple Pimpernel is an annual variety with large fragrant bi-coloured flowers in shades of maroon and purple. Long stems make this a great choice for cut flowers. Each plant can grow very tall and produce buckets of flowers early in the season. This threw a couple of plants that were the wrong colour last year so we are working to stabilise it before we offer it again. HOWEVER, it is a cracking sweet pea so if you would like some seed with the odd bright pink flower we do have some so please call 01476 530 063

Sweet pea seed grown and harvested with such care needs a suitable container to keep the seed stable and dry. The Easton Collection is now available in fully recyclable tins. Decorated in a pattern designed by Ursula Cholmeley, the tin reflects colours found in arts and crafts motifs of the Edwardian Era when sweet peas were as highly valued at Easton as they are today.
