Royal Sweet Pea Mix - 'Glencairn' Strain (Lathyrus odoratus) Another family heirloom that was collected from the old Glencairn school yard in Manitoba by Emil Byrka who completed his first teaching assignment there in 1963. Large incredibly fragrant 2 inch blossoms in distinct colours of red, purple, pink(s), blue, and white. This is a long-lasting bloomer that is popular with hummingbird species and apparently hardy enough to withstand years of prairie winters and restless school children!
