The Belin Pea. A delicate annual climber of restrained growth. Ideal for tubs and containers. Packets of 10 seeds.
 

A recently discovered (1988) annual species from Turkey, Lathyrus belinensis makes an unusual and attractive garden plant. It is easily grown and strongly scented, although the fragrance is different to that of the related sweet pea, Lathyrus odoratus.

An easily grown annual for a sunny position. Germination is improved if the seed coat is abraided prior to sowing, and the young plants can be planted out in their flowering position after the last frost. A much more delicate looking plant than the sweet pea, with small leaves and flowers. Lathyrus belinensis needs support for it to reach its natural height of about three feet and is very suitable for growing in tubs or hanging baskets where it can be left to trail in an informal manner. This species has the advantage of being immune to mildew.
