Wonderful Nasturtiums

Alaska Variegated Nasturtiums germinate well, even after a couple of years. They are vigorous and bloom from early spring (Tucson is very warm in the winter) into early summer. The variegated foliage is a terrific accent for cool season flowers and hot summer zinnias and marigolds.

The leaves are gorgeous and the flowers bloom in reds and orange. I love nasturtiums but this variety is my favorite. An important addition to your garden.

All seeds grew, but they weren't all this variety. Most were, but some were not variegated, some were a huge leafed variety some had just red flowers. Fun, but not consistent.

It never produced flowers
Patricia C Tompkins
Owner Response: Hi Patricia, Please feel free to contact us anytime you have questions. Nasturtiums are quite sensitive to soil richness and nitrogen and they will favor leaf growth over flowering in nitrogen-rich conditions. The also flower best in cool conditions, so in your hot-summer climate, they may just be waiting for a little cooldown.
