This is one sweet Pea.  Native to the Caucasus Mts, this takes a backseat to its more floriferous and showy cousins for it has simple pairs of pink flowers borne with restraint that nestle comfortably among the rounded leaflets.  Don't be misled by the backseat as it is the backseat of a Bentley.  Perfection of leaf and flower in exquisite refinement that demands you take a moment to admire.  It has prime space in our sunny border despite the petitions from more flamboyant plants blooming in containers back in the relative obscurity of the stock greenhouse.
