Eckford, 1905. This fine scarlet sweet pea with its bold standard was one of his finest achievements, far excelling other varieties of similar colouring. Makes a good cut flower and is very suitable for growing through rose bushes or other shrubs

Bred by Henry Eckford in 1905, this splendid scarlet heirloom sweet pea received an Award of Merit the first time it was shown. Generally three flowers on each stem, it holds its colour well and makes a spectacular addition to the cottage garden. This variety is less vigorous than most grandiflora sweet peas and is ideal where more restrained growth is reqired.

Annual climber to about 5 ft.
