We have not tried to grow them, but have seen them in our neighbors garden the last 3 years and they have always been amazing... However this year are definitely the best I've seen wonderful display of self-seeded flowers...

That's good news to hear they are self seeding and flowering well... Do you know if they are the cultivated or wild type ? Both are lovely..... I am 650m up, and have been told they would not grow here,so am chuffed ! Mine are cultivated ones.....as wanted them to cut to sell....this colder damp Spring seems to be what they like....and are planted in the shade......just incase we get some sun !!!

Think they were brought over from the UK. They are at about 400m, so a little lower down, and have them growing up an east facing garage wall, so they get early morning sun and shade later.. They may have gone native this year as most of the flowers are a very deep vivid blue. The plants are the most healthy sweet peas I've ever seen and have loads of these lovely flowers... We will certainly look to grow some next year, just have not had time this year to do so. Exclamation
