Nasturtium Apricot Trifle

by Maureen Sullivan on April 17, 2014

Full sun.  14 to 16 inches. Habit: mounded. more open face than other varieties.  Apricot Trifle has a lovely soft peachy-apricot colored flower whose petals have a bit of a frill.  The foliage of Apricot Trifle is a mid blue-green. The plant is edible. Use it to spice up your salads with the peppery taste of the flowers and  leaves.  Avoid adding too much nitrogen fertilizer to your planting as this will reduce flower bud production and encourage soft foliage growth.  Grow in moist but well drained soil.
