It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
Actually native to Italy, the famous garden Sweet Pea is usually considered a garden flower. We carry it due to popular demand – many wildflower gardeners have asked for it, to add brilliant color to their annual wildflower seed plantings. This flower is also frequently planted strictly to cut – it’s wonderful fragrance and beautiful blooms are perfect for bringing inside to enjoy.
Kids love this flower, and often plant it in "their own" gardens. Sweet Pea’s quick and fragrant blooms excite them and make it a great flower for their first garden.

Comments about American Meadows Sweet Pea Seeds Royal Family Mix:
I tried both this one and the vine variety. Both performed poorly in terms of germination and flowering. Will not buy these again.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
