Heath Pea Card

£3.50Price

Lathyrus linifolius

 

Most common in woods, hedges and hilly areas; flowering between April and July. Heath Pea tubers formed part of the Highland diet until the 18th Century, when the potato became an important crop in that region. Once dried, the tubers prevent thirst and hunger pangs. The original watercolour was painted by Sophia near Buxton, Derbyshire in June 1834.

 

Our square cards measure 140mm x 140mm and are left blank for your own personal message. Sophia's original watercolour is carefully reproduced on 320gsm Vellum Ivory card and comes complete with a bespoke 135gsm mid green, peel-and-seal envelope.

 

Produced in the UK, both card and envelope are made with paper that is FSC accredited and can be easily recycled.
