These peas have a vine-like growth that can reach lengths of 3 to 5 feet when planted in fertile soil. Winter peas are highly nutritious and extremely digestible to deer. They carry a protein level between 20 and 30 percent. Both the seed, stem and leaves are browsed by deer. Foliage color is a pale green, and the plant produces pink blooms. Austrian winter peas have moderate drought tolerance but have good winter hardiness.

 

Sow Lacy Phacelia seeds in the early spring when there is still a chance of frost. Press the wild flower seeds into the soil, cover 1/8, and keep seeds moist continuously. Thin seedlings to 12 inches apart. Lacy Phacelia will drop its own wildflower seeds. If seedlings and spreading is not desired, deadhead spent blooms.
