The Sweet Pea is a flowering plant belonging to the Lathryus family native to Sicily, southern Italy and the Aegean islands and can grow to a height of 2 meters.
The Sweet Pea was created from crossbreeding by a Scottish flower expert. The flower was a firm favourite in Victorian times.
The term ‘Sweet Pea’ was derived from the Greek term ‘Lathyrus’ (pea or pulse when translated into English). The flower’s usually given as a thank you or departure present as it symbolises ‘goodbye.’
