Alaska Mix

Alaska Mix Nasturtium

Tropaeolum majus (60 days) Striking variegated green and white foliage will make a formidable bush if you feed it heavily. But go easy on the nitrogen if you want to eat lots of its tangy yellow and orange blossoms. Edible flowers with spicy sweet fragrance lend a peppery-sweet taste to salads, leaves also edible. A great plant for hanging baskets. 16". Annual.
