The vivid flowers stand out like golden beacons against the rich, green foliage of the compact, tidy plants. Superb for brightening beds, borders and containers.
Nasturtiums are warm weather annuals that have been popular in herb gardens, cottage gardens and flower gardens for many years. Cultivars and hybrids sold under the name of Tropaeolum majus are generally referred to as common nasturtiums or garden nasturtiums.
Flowers have a spicy fragrance. Flowers bloom from summer to fall. Rounded, long-petioled, parasol-like leaves of these plants are peltate (petioles attached near the center of each leaf).
By reputation, nasturtiums are easy-to-grow annuals that are tolerant of a certain amount of neglect.
Effective in beds, borders, mixed plantings, rock gardens, herb gardens, edgings over walls or as annual ground covers on slopes or other sunny areas. They are also effective in containers, including hanging baskets.
Grow in poor to average, slightly acidic, well-drained soils in full sun. Plants have some tolerance for dry soils.
Best performance occurs in cool summer areas. Some part afternoon shade is appreciated in hot summer areas where plants will be stressed by prolonged stretches of high temperatures.
Avoid fertilization which tends to increase foliage output but decrease flower production.
