About sweet pea 'little sweetheart'

Lathyrus odoratus, commonly called sweet pea, is a bushy or climbing annual that grows highly fragrant flowers (odoratus meaning fragrant) on winged stems clad with medium to dark green leaflets in pairs. Stems end in tendrils which enable plants to climb.

In The Records

Sweet Peas have been traced to southern Italy and Sicily, where the plant grew wild. The sweet aroma and simple blooms delighted a Sicilian monk so much that he sent seeds to plant collectors and botanical institutions around the world.
