Peseta we changed for a climber (5,3)


I believe the answer is:

sweet pea

'climber' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'peseta we changed' is the wordplay.
'changed' indicates anagramming the letters.
'pesetawe' with letters rearranged gives 'SWEET PEA'.

'for a' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for sweet pea that I've seen before include "Eat, weeps and gets climbing flowers" , "flowering plant" , "Garden plant with brightly coloured flowers" , "Garden plant with pastel-coloured flowers" , "Climbing plant with pastel-coloured flowers" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
