Plant Description

Once while looking at our vines in the greenhouse with our friend Peggy Bilyeu we found a mutation on a Blue Butterly Pea. Most of the plant had the normal cobalt blue blooms except for this one branch which had double flowers of pure white. We took a cutting, got it to root, produced more plants and gave it the name White Butterfly. We’ve grown White Butterfly Peas in the past but we think this form has the best flower shape. Its always fun to come up with new plants, even if we stumble upon them.
