Gathered sweet pea seed. Cupani? How to plant?
There is a shady bend in a road in Santa Rosa, under a big oak where beautiful bicolor sweet peas bloom in the wild each spring. They look just like "Cupani" photos, an ancestral sweet pea. They probably escaped from a nearby yard. I've always said I would gather some seed to plant along a semi shady fence at the back of my house. Today, I stopped, found some pods with seeds and collected them.
Sunset and other sources give variable instructions on how to plant and grow sweet peas. Anyone ever try them? Sound like Cupani's (bicolor magenta and purple)? When to plant?
