Uncommon species which has an understated wowness. Not flamboyant this nonetheless garners lots of attention with its clusters of copper-orange Pea flowers in mid to late spring which are set off nicely by the dense light green leaves. Long-lived and choice perennial.
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. Don't be misled - it is the backseat of a Bentley. Perfection of leaf and flower in exquisite refinement.
A superb and rarely offered form of Lathyrus vernus, the Spring Bush Pea. This has long willow-like leaves compared to the typical form and the same lovely violet flowers. A graceful perennial, this makes a dense clump retaining textural interest long after the flowers fade.
