Tall Climbing Mix

Tall Climbing Mix Nasturtium

Tropaeolum majus (65 days) Tall trailing mix to 4–6' in red, orange, gold and exquisite bicolor shades. The red blossoms have a spicier taste than those of lighter colors. Plants will spread and fill in a huge space but having no tendrils cannot, strictly speaking, climb. The most prolific blossom set of any of the nasturtiums we have tried. Annual.

Avoid excess nitrogen, but don’t relegate nasties to the worst soil. Likes full sun. Start indoors or direct seed after last frost. ~6 seeds/g.
