Sweet Pea, Flora Norton

90-120 days- This old-fashioned, grandiflora type sweet pea will envelop your trellis or fence with clouds of periwinkle color and sweet perfume. Since the early 20th century, this 6- to 8-foot stunner has won the hearts of gardeners, even earning an award of garden merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1995. Flora Norton was listed in Vaughan’s Book for Florists for 1904, described as “very bright blue” and a “more clear blue than others.” We also find ourselves transfixed by the nearly indescribable color and decadent fragrance, which is much stronger than the more modern types of sweet pea.
