The large flowered Spencer strain of sweet peas dates from 1900, and has remained the most popular and widely grown ever since. Available in a huge range of colours and a variety of 'fancy' types with patterned or bicolour flowers, they offer something to cater for every taste. Most varieties have the lovely sweet pea fragrance which has done much to ensure the lasting popularity of flowers. Generally speaking, the blue shades and the lighter colours have the strongest fragrance, while the dark reds and scarlet sweet peas can be almost scentless. We have indicated the most highly scented varieties on the following pages by the symbol (S).
