Pink Nines Sweet Pea bred by Dr Keith Hammett.
This cultivar can have as many as nine large well spaced frilly pink flowers on every stem.
Dr Keith Hammett is New Zealand’s leading professional breeder of ornamental plants.
Despite a scientific background and long research history Keith sees the creation of ornamental plants as an art form comparable to other areas of aesthetic activity.
Sweet Peas and Dahlias were the two plants that attracted Keith to horticulture when he was still a teenager in England.
Since coming to New Zealand 40 years ago and becoming a Kiwi, Keith has developed many new forms of Sweet Pea. Some of these developments are revolutionary.
From the very start of his breeding, Keith sought to both develop new forms and to preserve types which seemed likely to be lost to cultivation.
