(L. sativus azureus) Brilliant azure-blue flowers about 1 inch across, borne on semi-trailing or bush plants reaching about 2 feet in height. Really distinctive accent or container plant! This Chinese native tolerates heat much better than ordinary sweet peas.

What are the pros? Beautifully unusual sweet pea

What are the cons? Low germination and fragile

Review:

I was delighted with these flowers--their delicate coloring and smallness, as compared to traditional sweet peas, were lovely surprises. I seeded them inside--pretty good germination rate *for a sweet pea*, which is notoriously hard to grow from seed. They struggled once transplanted, but eventually started to climb and bloom. They definitely preferred cool weather, but thoroughly worth the springtime treat. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND soaking sweet pea seeds and the nicking the seed with a small knife or nail clippers before planting. Really helps with germination rate.

What are the pros? fast to grow, pretty flowers

What are the cons? weedy foliage, no smell

Review:

The plan was to plant these guys on the corner of each bed, to attract the pollinators. Much to my pleasure, they germinated faster than anything else I planted but didn't seem to tempt any bees or butterflies. They did, however, draw in all the early aphids, and tolerated them very well. The aphids seemed perfectly happy staying on the peas, even when my other plants came up. So while I wouldn't plant these again as a bee attractant, they do very well as sacrificial lambs. I wouldn't consider these sweet peas, as they have no smell to speak of, but the flowers (which are very small) are a gorgeous shade of blue with a sweet pink blush in the center. My only complaint is that the foliage bushes out and it really does look like a clump of weeds but if you're looking for something new and interesting, give these a shot. Trivia Time! These are more commonly known as Chickling Vetch.
