Is this a Sweet Pea?

Post by wallysgirl351 » Fri Aug 19, 2005 2:53 am

I have just moved to Canada outside of Toronto on the Niagara Escarpment and I inherited this flower from the little old lady I bought my house from. It's vinelike and I have no idea what it is!

Folks have said it might be a Sweet Pea. It looks so exotic to me that I cannot believe it's a simple thing called a Sweet Pea.

Help Ya'll!

Yeah. im almost certain it is. My mum grows quite a lot of them in the garden . lol - looks exotic but it grows in the chilly north west of england (altho it is summer now).
It's always funny until someone gets hurt. Then it's just hilarious.
