Nasturtium Phoenix Seeds

Nasturtium Phoenix Seeds

Tropaeolum minus

Item #1315

Annual. The split petals of Phoenix seem to dance around each stamen like dazzling flames. Grow this distinctive nasturtium blend as a ground cover or to energize a flowerbed, container, or even the vegetable garden with a jolt of bright color. For a fantastic color contrast, pair with Alyssum Oriental Nights, Lobelia Cambridge Blue, or Bachelor’s Button Blue Boy. These edible nasturtium flowers can also be used to jazz up salads, pastas, and hors d’oeuvres with peppery flavor.
