The scent of these sweet peas is almost overpowering

These lovely sweet peas were planted last year, and seeded themselves. They were in flower before I had planted out any of the seedlings I raised this year ... now they are in full flower. Matucana, aka Cupani's original, the mother of all sweet peas - and obviously tough as old boots, as well as being the most beguiling and sweetly scented of them all!

Hi Joanna,
I can practically smell them from here! They look lovely.

Thank you ... they're on my desk, and the smell as I opened the door this morning was really intense. I made a resolution a year or two ago to try to plant only scented flowers - these really make it easy not to waver!

Beautiful! I often bring my herbs in as a bouquet. I've not tried sweet peas as Dallas gets so hot so fast most years it just doesn't pay.
