Trapaeolum nanum ‘Alaska Mix’
A garden favorite with an abundance of bright, 2-3” double spurred flowers in a range of warm colors. This dwarf Nasturtium is easy to grow and long blooming. Beautiful variegated leaves and a mix of gold, orange, red and yellow flowers that are edible and have a tangy, peppery taste. Try them in salads or as a colorful garnish. Bumble bees love these flowers.
Often used as an edible flower in salads and as garnishes, the spicy fresh flavor is a real treat.
