Bouquet Navy sweet peas are one of the darkest blue varieties on the market, with deep navy flowers and hints of dark purple. If you'd like to buy paler varieties, why not have a look at our full sweet pea range? It's a Spencer Summer Multiflora type, which means they have the Spencer-type frilly flower form but carry from four to six blooms per long, strong stem, making them a favourite with exhibitors, professional florists and home flower arrangers. Introduced by Denholm in 1998, Bouquet Navy has a medium to strong fragrance.
As with all sweet peas, it's best to place Bouquet Navy close to a path or sitting area where you can appreciate the perfume and subtle changes of colour and texture in the petals. It also makes deadheading a lot easier, so blooming continues throughout the summer. Whereas some varieties need to be appreciated on their own, Bouquet Navy looks at its best providing a dark contrast with other pale or vibrant varieties, so it's a really useful flower to have around.
As its name suggests, it looks elegant in a bouquet or vase, where its deep shades will form an excellent framework for other flowers. Bouquet Navy's long, strong stems make it easy to work with in floral arrangements. Try growing some in the cutting garden purely for use in summer vases.
Sweet pea Bouquet Navy has two 'sister' varieties, Bouquet Crimson and Bouquet Pink, which share its Spencer Summer Multiflora attributes as excellent cut flowers or exhibition varieties.
