Description: 

Sweet peas were discovered by a Sicilian gardener in the late 1600s; he followed his nose, and their fragrance beckoned. By the early 20th Century, they were one of the most sought-after flowers for English gardeners. Breeding these flowers for color, size, ruffle, and adaptation to different climates became the rage. But something happened along the way their fragrance faded. Let the heady perfume of this mix return you to the days when sweet peas weren't just for show but were also for the intoxicating aroma! 

Sweet peas are not edible garden peas; in fact, they are toxic. Enjoy with your nose but do not consume.
