Sweet Pea Cupani - Seeds & Bulbs

Sweet Pea Cupani
(Lathyrus odoratus)

The first sweet pea variety to arrive in England was Cupani, sent to Dr Uvedale from a monk, Father Franciscus Cupani, during the late 1600's. Cupani is a spring/summer bloomer. In asras without long, cool springs, this is a excellent variety to choose because it will continue to bloom as the temperature increases. A very fragrant piece of history for your garden.
