Anniversary is one of the most cherished Spencer varieties of sweet pea, especially loved by exhibitors. It is a white sweet pea with a broad picotee of pale pink that draws attention to the wonderfully undulating petal edges. It has a fantastic scent and is particularly strong growing, rarely dropping its buds. The thing that especially sets Anniversary apart is its really long straight stems on which you can find up to six flowers, making it a boon for florists. All sweet pea aficionados rate this sweet pea extraordinarily highly partly because its season of flowering is so long - it will keep flowering long after most other sweet peas have given up the ghost. Anniversary is just one of many in our range of sweet peas for sale where you will find well-chosen colours and styles.
With its combination of pastel shades and many flowers you could be forgiven for just allowing Anniversary to be the single sweet pea to make its mark in your garden, but how much more fun to combine it with other Spencers like the pure White Supreme or blushing Gwendoline. If you wanted to try an old-fashioned partner to devastating effect, look no further than the dark good looks of Black Knight - a very different sweet pea in style and colour. Like all sweet peas, keep picking the flowers to ensure that your plant produces more and more. Once it starts to set seed the number of flowers will dwindle dramatically.
Anniversary was raised by Bill Truslove and introduced to the market by Marchant in 1986. It is one of the most exhibited of sweet peas.
