What are the pros? Color and Ease
What are the cons? Some people dislike scent
These are a fun color combination. The flowers start out a deep, strawberry pink with white and then fade to a pastel pink and white once they've been in a vase for a day or two. Both versions are pretty. The scent on these is strong but it seems to be slightly less powdery than other sweet peas. Compared to other varieties, these vines were shorter. They topped out at around 2.5 to 3 feet. I've grown these in Dallas (zone 8a) and Central Texas (9a) and the trick is to plant them in October and let them overwinter in the ground. I don't bother mulching or covering them unless we have a freak cold snap with multiple days in the teens. They'll sprout in the fall and then really take off around February. Make sure your trellis is in place in early February. They bloom in March and April.
