Painted Lady' is an absolutely gorgeous bicolor ornamental sweet pea (not to be confused with edible peas!). The white and pink flowers small fantastic — that's why this species is called "sweet." It's an annual vine grown exclusively for its beauty and intense aroma. Developed by Henry Echford, a Scottish plant breeder who became famous across Britain and the wider world in the 1800s for his fabulous sweet peas. Blossoms apparently go from white/rose in the morning to shades of purple by evening. The fragrance is strongest at night.

Our friend and EFN collaborator, Jennifer Williams, of Wild Dreams Farm and Seeds, grew 'Painted Lady' for EFN.
