While I’m often tempted to try some of the many single-color strains of hybrid sweet peas, I keep going back to this pretty blend because of the delightful and dependable fragrance. The colors are mostly a range of pinks and purples, though whites and blues are also possible. Here in my southeastern PA garden, I have ‘Old Spice Mix’ growing in a site with full morning sun and a few more hours of sun in late afternoon to sundown. The vines usually start blooming in July and continue into August; if I frequently cut the fresh flowers for the house, it even continues into September. Like other sweet peas, ‘Old Spice Mix’ climbs by tendrils, so it does best on a support with slender verticals that they can easily grab onto: something like string, netting, wire mesh, or thin stakes. The vines can reach 6 to 8 feet in height, depending on the support. Full sun in cool climates; light shade during the hottest part of the day elsewhere. Annual.
Harvested in August 2022. At least 12 seeds.
