This pretty Sweet Pea is one of the plants in the Heirloom garden maintained by community volunteers. It is a low bushy type plant that had spread out four or five feet across its space.
The Sweet Pea plant produced these purple peas that were really thick all over the plant. It would be beautiful planted just about anywhere in a garden or spot in the yard. Between the flowers and the peas it is really pretty.
The Sweet Pea plant must be good because this grasshopper is enjoying a mid-day snack. There were other insects crawling on the plant as well.
The Sweet Pea plant might be good for someone wanting to add something different to their flower garden next spring. Heirloom seeds can be found at a variety of websites.
