T. minus. Annual. 8"

Beautiful green and white marbled foliage provides the background for a brightly colored range of flowers set well above the leaves.  Alaska Mixed Nasturtium is a shorter nasturtium perfect for containers. All parts of nasturtiums are edible but the flowers are exceptional. The flowers have a peppery taste that combines well with other greens in a salad and provides a punch of color.

Planting DirectionsSow seeds 1/2” deep in fine soil after danger from frost has past. Germination takes 7-12 days. Thin plants to 8” apart when plants are 3” tall. Nasturtiums prefer light full sun, with afternoon shade where summers are hot.

Provide a trellis or other support for climbing species. Nasturtiums will flower best in ordinary rather than rich soil.  They do not transplant easily.
