Lathyrus odoratus ‘Cupani’

Cupani was a Sicilian monk and it is him that we should thank for bringing this gorgeous Sweet Pea into cultivation over 300 years ago (1699 to be precise). It is from this one plant that all modern varieties have been bred.  It has a striking bicolour combination and the most heavenly scent.   Definitely one of my favourites.
