Many years ago, I grew Sweet Pea 'Royal Family Mix'. This is the only color in the mix that reseeded. It has been growing in my garden ever since.

Sweet Pea 'Royal Red' is a nice shade of red - not too orange and not too purple. I would call it cherry red. It has a light fragrance, and it looks terrific with roses and many different perennials and annuals.
