Sweet Pea, Eckfords Finest Mix

Short Description

HEIRLOOM. This mix has an incredible color range.

Full Description

Today, sweet peas remind one of a Victrola in the parlor. Considered very romantic, some antique strains can be wonderful if chosen carefully; others can be duds. We've selected only the best for you. All have a slight honey or orangey aroma and make excellent spring cut flowers. Henry Eckford, the father of modern sweet peas and the leading developer in the late 1800s, produced over 100 varieties. This mix of his best has an incredible color range: shell pink, maroon, violet, cream, blue and crimson striped with white.

Sweet Pea, Eckfords Finest Mix is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from spectacular sweet peas I planted Eckford's finest mix in April- they have been blooming non-stop since the end of June- it's now August 19, and they are showing no signs of stopping! The plants are vigorous, the color mix is attractive, and the smell is to die for! Highly recommended!
