Flamboyant yet delicate, 'Rosa Perle' in full flower is a stunning sight with large clusters of flushed rosy-pink pea flowers held on rectangular grey green winged stems.  Picking the flowers before any seeds develop helps prolong the display, which can go on from June through to September.  

Most gardeners grow the Everlasting Sweet Pea as a climber on a frame, but it is just as happy ascending an open shrub, or without support scrambling through neighbouring plants, just perfect for hiding the bare legs of a rose or the foliage of early summer flowering perennials as they fade.  Beloved by bees, it thrives in a fertile, free draining soil in sun or partial shade.
