Nasturtium Mahogany Seeds

Tropaeolum majus

Item #1194

Annual. Mahogany’s rich color is reminiscent of gleaming antique furniture — it adds “polish” to a garden bed, border or container! The deep red flowers and green leaves blend beautifully in any planting, filling in quickly where all-season color is needed. Mahogany is easy to grow from seed. Rabbit and deer deterrent.
