Sweet peas, what can I say about these brightly hued magenta blooms the size of half dollars except WOW! I love them because they start on a small climbing vine and blossom all summer long. We have them everywhere almost as a weed, but what a colorful weed it is. We have them in many different places in the lily bed, the peony bed and last year we set up a little area just for them. It's an elongated oval that have two climbing fences for them to go up about 5 feet and although weedy looking, I love their long leaves and spindly quality. After the bloom comes a long, thin pod filled with seeds - how cool, right?
