A superb 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.  This narrow leaf form has a number of names - subsp. gracilis, 'Gracilis', var. flaccida, 'Flaccida', 'Filifolius' that are used interchangeably and we're not sure what is correct but we know that if we simply say 'Narrow Leaf' then you can use whichever name carries the most weight in your opinion.  Excellent is sun or light shade and a plant we would not be without.
