Sweet Pea

Lathyrus

Sweet peas are a gorgeous group of annual or perennial vines with colorful flowers. The annual types are the most common, and they bear large, often ruffled blooms in a rainbow of shades. Many are strongly fragrant, too -- so it's no wonder why they're such classic plants. Note: Though they're related to garden peas, sweet pea seeds are poisonous.
