The Best Blush Sweet Peas

Of the 49 varieties I grew last year, honestly there wasn’t a single one that I didn’t like! But there were some heart stoppers, the ones I just never had enough of. The white, cream, blush, and soft peachy tones were what most of my brides wanted this summer (often times mixed with burgundy and slate blue)

White frills is my favorite pure white. Jilly is wonderful too, with a more creamy tone. White Frills and Jilly are both Spencer varieties, while Cathy is a semi-grandiflora. What’s the difference, you ask? Grandifloras combine the classic sweet pea fragrance and loads of blooms like the old-fashioned varieties with the larger, wavy blooms and longer stems of the Spencers.

Baby’s Blush has small, blush fading to pure white flowers, but loads of them! Very fragrant and it’s such a prolific grower, you won’t mind sacrificing some blooms to harvest the foliage.

Whether you are new to growing sweet peas, or a seasoned veteran, these are great varieties to give a try! I would love to hear some of your favorites to add to my list this year….
