Question: Is there a pre-annual version of a sweet pea? Years ago, when growing up in upstate NY, my parents had a grand garden. Along the fence and climbing a trellis, were beautiful sweet peas, light pink in color. They came up each year. I have looked for years for the seed and have been unsuccessful in finding them. Do you know of this variety? Thank you. Marsha Muller Houston,TX
