Hardy annuals can be sown directly into their flowering positions in the spring and will tolerate a certain amount of cold. Well-known flowers such as sweet peas, poppies, stocks and sunflowers fall under this category, as do some of the more unusual flowers - gomphocarpus & ratibida for example.

Sweet Pea 'Orange Dragon'
Lathyrus odoratusOne of the few orange varieties with superb quality blooms of the brightest orange-red. With its startling colour and soft, alluring fragrance, Sweet Pea 'Orange Dragon' makes an eye catching variety for the show bench. The long, straight flower stems are ideal for using in cut flower arrangements too. This unusual coloured sweet pea prefers a slightly shadier position to prevent the flowers from fading in the sun.
