Commonly regarded as an excellent companion plant and 'trap crop,' Nasturtium has been planted alongside gardens since antiquity, with beautiful blooms attracting pollinators and drawing attention from unwanted insect visitors away from more sensitive crop plants.
These nasturtium plants are a combination of both Jewel Nasturtium, noted for their attractive edible flowers, and Tall Climbing Nasturtium, well regarded for their ability to spread and vine. Nasturtium plants are fully edible, with flavor reminiscent of watercress, and can be planted alongside gardens, in hanging baskets, or in separate containers to enjoy their beauty.
Mature plants reach a height of 1-2', and flower set occurs 55-65 days after germination, meaning these plants should be ready to bloom by late May to mid June.
Plants are available in 4" pots beginning the week of 4/15.
