Planted nearly the whole package and while I got lots of flowers- every single one was orange. I also wouldn't call them "trailing"- I wasn't able to train them up a trellis as planned, the stems aren't very flexible and they're really not conducive to this. Definitely not 5'-6' "vines" as stated.

Always Successful and Abundant

I've never had a problem with these, always a success, and I've been growing them for three years with the seeds that I collect from them. They do require a lot of room to spread, so it seems like the trails are more than 6-feet long. For me, they've not preferred to climb - I've had to hook them to the fences where I wanted them to grow. Without encouragement, they will crawl into places that you don't want them to be, or spill onto the ground where I trip over them! Mine are abundant with flowers and so many different kinds of bees and other winged insects, I think they head immediately for the nasturtium and forget that I have other plants in the garden that would like to be pollinated. Just learned this year that red ants will protect black aphids on the nasturtium leaves for their "honeydew," so I just left all of them there without worrying about anything.

For the past several years I've been planting my own hanging baskets - 20 of them in total all on drip lines - from seed every spring with these nasturtiums, yielding incredible results! As the price of nursery-grown hanging baskets continues to reach absurd new heights, this is a really good, affordable option I would highly recommend. The baskets do surprisingly well and the neighbors always look forward to them! Good luck, growers!

These are just gorgeous. I've grown them for the past two years. All the colors have shown themselves just as advertised. They do make long vines, one of mine grew to 16 feet down the side of a bed and then along the outer edge flowering all along the way. They are growing in really good amended topsoil which probably helps them along. They make for a beautiful edging.
