Sweet Pea Turquoise
Sweet Pea ‘Turquoise’
This incredible variety bred by Roger Parsons is the most fragrant sweet pea variety we grow. Plants are smothered in medium-sized blooms that start out a soft lavender and take on a turquoise cast as they age. Worth growing for the scent alone! Every cutting garden deserves a row of fragrant, nostalgic sweet peas. A fistful of these demure little blooms are how Floret was born, and they continue to spellbind us each season.
*Unlike garden peas, sweet pea seeds are poisonous if ingested. Use caution around children and pets.*

How to Grow:
In mild areas seeds can be sown in pots in the fall, wintered over in a sheltered spot and planted out in spring. Everywhere else, sow seeds 10-12 weeks before the last frost and plant out right around the last frost. Provide a strong trellis or support for vines to climb.
For the longest vase life, pick when there are at least 2 unopened flowers at the tip. Vase life will be shorter when picked more open. Sweet peas are a short-lived cut flower, lasting at best 4-5 days in a vase. Adding a source of sugar or flower food to the water will extend vase life a few additional days.
