More Lathyrus

Lathyrus aureus
Lathyrus aureus
Reminiscent of L.vernus in that it doesn’t climb but bigger and producing flowers of an unusual soft orange colour. For any good soil but especially nice in light woodland.
2L pots ~ £6





Lathyrus davidii
Lathyrus davidii
Another orange-ish flowered species but quite different to aureus with a more robust upright, almost climbing habit and oddly coloured flowers beginning yellowish green. 
Lathyrus davidii?
Also good in woodland conditions but very adaptable.
2L pots ~ £6





Lathyrus sulphureus
Lathyrus sulphureus
From California – this is one of those peculiar Lathyrus that has tendrils and seems to want to climb but never quite gets it together. The flowers remind me of L.davidii, starting out pale yellowish green and ending up orange. Very pretty, in a quiet way, and easy.
