Sweet Pea 'Athena Mix' (Modern Grandiflora Mix) is highly fragrance modern grandiflora mix in maroon, pink, cream and white are the colours. The addition of the maroon gives an unexpected contrast to the pastel colours. The more you pick, the more they produce and a vase of Sweet Peas is a welcoming sight - and perfume - in any room.

No garden should be without some, if only to supply the house with constant cut flowers. Incidentally, although a great deal of energy has to be expended on growing blooms for exhibition purposes, lesser mortals will achieve satisfying results by little more than the sow and forget technique.

Annual (One season plant). A popular flowering vine reaching up to 5-6 feet. Beautiful and long lasting romantically-fragrant flowers. A spring flowering plant in a wide range of bright colour shades. Great in the garden or for cutting in bunches.
