Striped, ruffled petals on long stems.

From the Spencer Series. Lavender streaks throughout and lining the petal edge. Plants produce 3–4 blooms per 9–12" stem. Highly fragrant. NOTE: Spencer Series sweet peas are known as late-flowering because they require at least 12 hours of daylight, unlike more modern sweet pea varieties bred for winter production, which may require only 10–11 hours of daylight.

Support such as Hortonova vertical trellis is needed to support plants.
