Sweet Pea Miss Willmott
(Lathyrus odoratus)

Named after a famous garden writer of the 20th century, this hundred-year-old antique sweet pea has a deep orange-pink color that will add a cheery note to any garden. Miss Willmott blooms in warmer weather than most. In areas without long, cool springs, this is an excellent variety because it will continue to bloom as the temperatures begin to increase. This is a good choice if you are getting your sweet peas in a little late.
