Bred specifically as a commercial cut flower strain of sweet pea for winter production, Winter Sunshine™ Sweet Peas have proved versatile and productive under a wide range of conditions.
In the UK, light levels over the winter months are too low to permit very early flowering, but they still start to bloom several weeks earlier than other types, typically in March under glass.
The varieties listed below are exclusive to Owl's Acre Sweet Peas, and have been chosen as the most reliable performers under sub-optimal light conditions. They are far superior to Winter Elegance and other older strains, and have a more uniform flowering response. It should, however, be noted that winter flowering varieties benefit from a higher standard of crop management than that required by later flowering sorts.
The rapid flowering response of these sweet peas make them valuable for countries with a short growing season, but they also unrivalled for winter flower production in Australia, California, the warmer areas of New Zealand, and other regions with a Mediterranean type climate.
