Lathyrus odoratus
FLOWER-SWEET PEA-PAINTED LADY is the first ever bicolor sweet pea, & the first named sweet pea cultivar still with us from its discovery in 1737! Painted Lady is a beautiful rose, pastel pink & cream bicolor that is deliciously scented & heat tolerant. Begins flowering early & it will grow to 2.5 m tall, bearing hundreds of 3 cm bi-colored blooms on 20 -25 cm strong stems. An excellent garden performer, adaptable to most well-drained garden soils but avoid waterlogging the soil. This variety dates to 1737 and was planted by Jefferson at Monticello in the early 1800s.

Sow outdoors. Germinate at 20-30°C on the surface of a free draining, damp seed compost, 3 seeds per 7.5cm pot then apply a layer of compost 1cm deep. Place in a polythene bag until after germination.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
