Lathyrus sativus azureus - Electric Blue Sweet Pea

Lathyrus sativus azureus gets planted by seed in the late Fall or very early in the Spring. Electric Blue Sweet Pea blooms through the Spring and will continue into the first part of Summer if the spent flowers are removed. The blue flowers are striking in any garden. Lathyrus sativus azureus is a good plant for the early season Butterfly Garden, drawing a nectaring Monarch or Western Tiger Swallowtail and the occaisional Spring Azure or Marine Blue. By Mid Summer the flowers are spent, I collect seed and wait for the next season, cutting down the plants.
