Grass pea (Lathyrus sativus var. azureus), also known as chickling pea or chickling vetch, bears small, intensely blue flowers that may be tinged with pink. Occasionally, a white-flowered plant will appear as well. The flowers usually bloom through summer—possibly all season in cool climates—scattered among slender, bright green leaves along slender, vining stems that typically reach 3 to 4 feet. Try it on a short trellis in a container, let it trail out of a windowbox, or plant it in a mid-border position and let it weave into and up through companion plants. Full sun. Annual.
