Such a wonderful early spring blooming perennial.
We have three different lathyrus vernus distinguished by the different colored blooms i.e. purple, pale pink and white.
Love Spring Vetchling
Nice! I've tried it a couple times and haven't had luck keeping it.
Might have to try it again. Any tips for keeping it?
I'm not sure if our summer heat/humidity could be the problem,
as is often the case.
I see why you like it. I have never tried it, possibly from an (irrational?) fear of invasiveness. That does NOT look invasive.
Thanks 'robin and 'pistil'.
I am not sure I can offer you any advice re maintaining its health as so far all 6 of mine have done ok w/o any intervention on my part. I have no doubt that in your much warmer climate it will go dormant.
So far the purple flowered ones are the most vigorous but I have seen no sign of any seedlings and it has been in our garden for now a couple of seasons.
