Flower and pod color of different pea varieties

I have a row of all different pea varieties to grow, and I was wondering if I can alternate different flower colors to try and keep straight which pea is which, at ten or a dozen seeds each and being tall varieties I suspect it may be tangly! :evil:
Can anyone tell me what is the flower and/or pod color of:
Calvert (I believe the pod is green but IDK about the flower)
Brazilian (snow pea, this is a Marbled type seed, again I think green podded but no idea about the flowers)
Irish Prean
King Tut (I believe is purple podded and purple or red flowered)
Sugar Magnolia (again I think purple podded and red flowered)
AgCan Zone 5a/USDA zone 4
temperate marine climate
yearly precip 61 inches/1550 mm
