Nasturtium Whirlybird Mix

Nasturtium-Whirlybird-MixFull sun.  14 to 16 inches. Habit: mounded. Whirlybird nasturtiums differ from most nasturtiums in that they are spurless so the flowers have a more open face than other varieties.  Whirlybird mix comes in a wide range of colors, many of them quite vibrant.  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.
