Lathyrus Sativus Blue Flowered Lathyrus or Chichling Vetch


Lathyrus Sativus Blue Flowered Lathyrus or Chichling VetchLathyrus Sativus is a native of France, Spain, and Italy, and distinguishable when in flower by the blue colour of its blossoms, which are sometimes, however, milk-white; but its seed-pods afford a more certain mark of distinction, being unusually short, broad, and winged on the back.

This species grows to the height of about 2 feet, and is usually sown in the spring with other annuals; though not so beautiful, the Lathyrus Sativus forms a contrast to the sweet and Tangier Pea, and may be introduced where there is plenty of room, or a desire of possessing and knowing most of the plants of a genus.

It flowers in June and July.
