Deep pink standards, wings white with pink veins. 3 or 4 flowers on each stem. One of the most popular grandiflora sweet peas, and highly scented.

The original Painted Lady sweet pea arose as a sport from 'Cupani' in about 1730. It had only one or two small flowers per stem, and survived in cultivation at least until 1910 when it was not considered to be worth growing. This form is clearly a more recent reselection, with larger, more numerous flowers. A charming and very popular heirloom sweet pea with a particularly strong scent.
Annual climber to about 6 ft.
