One of the first Sweet Peas to be introduced into Britain just before the year 1700, by a Sicilian monk, Franciscus Cupani. This variety has the original enthralling Sweet Pea fragrance which is captivating in every way. A wonderful cut flower and garden plant with masses of bicoloured, purple and deep blue blooms.
Please note flower size is slightly smaller than modern day hybrids.
