A fine free flowering pure white grandiflora sweet pea with flowers carried in threes. White seed.

Introduced by Eckford in 1901, and by several other seedsmen in 1902 under a variety of names. It took the involvement of the NSPS to suppress the alternative names. An outstanding heirloom variety which was considered superior to the early Spencer varieties of the same colour for decorative purposes, and remained an important commercial cut flower until about 1920. This is a white seeded variety, and the seeds should be nicked, not soaked, prior to sowing.
Annual climber to about 6 ft.
