Lathyrus odoratus

The New Empress in Compact Sweet Peas

Villa Roma is an exciting new dwarf bush type sweet pea with sweet scenting blooms. This type of sweet pea flowers abundantly and is ideal for container gardening. Besides the home garden market it also has good potential for the professional grower market. With a neatly mounded plant habit it grows about 35 cm (14 in.) tall, which makes it suitable for growing in patio pots and/or large containers. This makes Villa Roma fit in perfectly with a summer flowering plant program.
