We want to share with you our love for this charming flower. From its humble origins in the fields of Sicily, it has come many miles since its discovery by Sicilian monk, Francisco Cupani , nearly three hundred years ago.
The Sweet Pea is a faithful constant of English gardens; immortalised by Keats, who felt moved to write a poem about it, the Sweet Pea was also celebrated by the Victorians for its heady perfume and used as a cut flower in coursages and boutonnières. It was later claimed by the Edwardians who hailed it the floral emblem of Edwardian England and favoured it for weddings and high society dinner parties.
In the language of flowers, the Sweet Pea means ‘delicate or blissful pleasure’. Its meaning is also synonymous with ‘thank you for a lovely time’.
The Sweet Pea is a flower with a story which has captivated our imagination and our senses and one which we would like to share with you.
