An amazingly coloured perennial sweet pea.
Remarkable and very unusual yellow-orange, heavily veined sweet pea flowers are produced in profusion on vigorous vines which can be trained over trellis or fences.
This little known member of the "Sweet Pea" family was discovered in Turkey in 1987 and has uniquely coloured flowers with a beautiful scent quite unlike any other sweet pea.
An easily grown plant, succeeding in any moderately good garden soil. It prefers a deep moist well-drained soil in a cool position. Prefers a position in full sun, growing well on hot sunny banks. The seed remains viable for 4 - 5 years in sea water. This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain soil bacteria, these bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby.
