Lathyrus odoratus, ‘Mammoth Salmon Cream’
Extra early, extra large blooms are the feature of this award winning sweet pea, the ‘Mammoth’ series is an excellent choice for early spring colour and the best strain for producing early cut flowers. The plants are early to flower, heat tolerant and produce well into summer.
The vigorous plants have long, strong stems which bear plenty of large fragrant blossoms.
The Mammoth Series belongs to a type of sweet pea called an ‘Early Multiflora Gigantea’. These varieties of sweet pea were developed before the Spencer’s variety and are popular with commercial cut flower growers, as they produce very large and good-quality flowers borne on long stems. The most popular series is the Mammoth Series, which is marked by the longest stems, and a very large flower. This series is also known for great uniformity in the flowering time across different floral colours.
If you have never seen this kind of sweet pea on long stems before, and don’t quite understand what all the fuss is all about…they are marvellous … guaranteed to make you fall completely in love with them.
