The Golden Pea

For years I had a golden pea – Lathyrus aureus – which I’d grown from seed.  Then, the rabbits decided they liked it too.  The rest is a dismal story.

After its demise, I tried to grow another one, but all attempts failed.  Then, one of our gardeners in the Gardening class gave me a seedling from their Golden Pea.  She has just asked me if it still survives, and sent me a picture of the parent plant.

Yes it does survive!  And it’s flowering right now.

This is the picture sent to me of its Mum, or Dad, or both…  And a lovely thing it is.

 

Judy's Lathyrus aureus A

It’s a shrubby, herbaceous plant, not a climber.

Thanks for giving me one of your offspring!  :~))
