Group Details

Nasturtiums are a welcome addition to any sunny garden. Monet planted them in the border of the pathway that led to the front door of his home in Giverny, France.  Nasturtium flowers and leaves are edible and make an attractive addition to salads. They have a slightly peppery taste.  Some readily available cultivars include:  Nasturtium ‘Alaska’
‘Alaska’ series – heavily variegated leaves (green mottled with creamy white) on bushy plants with bright single flowers in a variety of colors held above the foliage.  ‘Black Velvet’ – deep maroon flowers.
‘Empress of India’ – brilliant single crimson red flowers and dark, purplish foliage. A classic compact variety that is good in pots.
‘Gleam’ – double flowers in a mix of colors on semi-trailing plants about 12” tall. ‘Jewel’ series – bushy, dwarf plants with double and semi-double flowers in red, pink, yellow and orange. Unusual fluted petals add interest to containers.  ‘Jewel of Africa’ – a trailing type with variegated leaves.  ‘Peach Melba’ – has semi-double yellow flowers with a red-orange throat. It is a dwarf plant that is good in containers.
‘Tip Top’ series – an improved ‘Alaska,’ with mottled and spotted leaves and bright flowers in yellow, red and orange.  ‘Tom Thumb’ series – a shorter (6-9”) type with large, vivid blooms in bright yellow, red and orange. A good choice for smaller gardens.  ‘Vesuvius’ – brilliant deep orange flowers on compact plants.  ‘Whirlybird’ series – compact, mid-green plants (9-12”) with semi-double flowers in shades of orange, yellow, salmon, deep mahogany and rose. The ruffled flowers lack the typical flower spur, so they sit flat on the tops of the stems.  ‘Canary Creeper’ is actually a different species (T. peregrinum) that is a perennial vine in zones 9-11 or grown as an annual. It has bright yellow, fringed flowers that look somewhat like bird’s wings and 5-lobed, light green leaves. It is very fast growing with a wide variety of colors.

Photos, paintings, prints, or digital art of Nasturtium flowers is acceptable.
