This regionally adapted and locally grown variety of sweet pea came to us from a seed saver in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego. She has been growing these stunning sweet peas since 1993 and shared them with us! Point Loma Pops have gorgeous deep, dark purple flowers that are full of fragrance and resistant to powdery mildew. Grown on a trellis or left to grow wild in the garden, they will happily reseed and bring about years of beautiful blooms.
Recommended Planting Requirements: Loose well-drained soil is the best for peas. Organic matter can be added for a healthier harvest. Peas are best grown up a trellis or some support system for neatness. Sweet Peas should be sown in the fall for early spring blooms. Sweet pea seeds are slow to germinate and can be soaked beforehand to help speed up the process.
Growing Recommendation: Peas need cool weather for the best growth. Start seeds in late fall in areas with a mild winter for spring blooms. For prolonged blooms, secession planting is recommended.
Harvesting & Storage: Flowers can be cut and used in arrangements. Please be aware the sweet peas are not edible and can be poisonous to some animals.
