Francis Cupani, a Franciscan monk, first sent seed of the purple-flowered species to England from Sicily in 1699. The 'Painted Lady' is a highly scented, pink and white bicolor variety, which was in cultivation by the 1730s and popular in American gardens through the 19th century. In 1811 Jefferson planted "Lathyrus odoratus. Sweet scented pea" in an oval flower bed at Monticello. This annual vine climbs to 8 feet; prefers cool weather, full sun to part shade and rich loam. Soak seeds in warm water 1 to 8 hours and sow in early spring in pots or directly in the garden.

Approximately 10-12 seeds per pack.
