Sweet Pea 'Joyce Stanton'


Lathyrus odoratus 'Joyce Stanton' 

Undoubtedly our new favourite Navy sweet pea. This sweet pea has four large richly coloured ruffled flowers on each of its long and strong stems.Lots of flowers on a very tall plant that go well with other dark colours or contrast it with pastels in a vase.There is a light scent so you could grow it with a heritage sweet pea such as 'Captain of the Blues' where you get smaller flowers but a great punch of scent.

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.
