Everlasting Sweet Peas

Annual plants are those whose life cycle lasts for only one year, including germination, bloom, and production of seed, after which the parent plant dies.
Biennial Plants have a life cycle that is completed in two years or seasons, with the second season usually devoted to flowering and fruiting. The odd
short-lived perennial that is treated as a biennial may have crept in here too.

Anyone know anything about the everlasting variety of sweet pea. Are there different
colours, or are they all the same dark pink? Can they be bought as seed, and what do I ask for?

yes Yoho you can get them from seed they're called Lathyrus latifolius. They come in shades of pink, mauve & white....I'm growing them for the first time this year want to grow them up the trellis around my patio...don't think the flowers are as large as annual sweet peas tho!

Yes, I'm also growing some for the first time from seed this year. White ones "Everlasting White Pearl". They're doing OK, growing slower than the annuals though.

They make a very large root system and self seed easily as well - just a wee warning

Thanks folks. Again, it doesn't matter how much they spread. Another fence at the bottom of the garden. Just something to cheer up a bare wire fence. I was in town this morning, and had to call in Martins hardware, and they have a garden shop, so came out with a couple of packs of Unwins Everlasting Mix. Look good in the piccie, but don't they all. Shades of Pink through to white.
