Sweet Pea Villa Roma Navy Blue
Villa Roma is being celebrated as the best new sweet pea type, with its compact, low-growing habit. The beautiful plants require no staking, and bloom prolifically all summer long. Excellent sweet peas for patio containers or hanging baskets. They are exceptionally lovely spilling down a stone garden wall, or ambling along a pathway. Not only are the the 1-inch blue-violet blossoms charming, they have that wonderful sweet pea scent that makes us love them even more.
