|A climbing, old-fashioned plant with racemes of 2 to 4 flowers in purplish red. This is a delicate looking plant with large and pea-shaped, fragrant flowers from spring to early summer. Really needs support to reach its full potential. The mid to deep green leaves equal one of a pair of ovate to elliptical leaflets. A great cut flower, especially wonderful when used as one, massive bouquet. Easily started from seed. Plants may climb up step railings, trellises or twigs that form a tee pee.
