Nasturtium Empress of India

by Maureen Sullivan on April 17, 2014

Full sun.  12 inches. Habit: semi-trailing. Empress of India has vibrant red-orange flowers and deeply colored blue-green foliage.  Use nasturtium 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.
