The beautiful, salmon colored flowers will attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden. These insects include butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees & hummingbirds. Many gardeners sow these seeds to establish a butterfly garden, since they can be grown with other nasturtium and wildflowers.

These delicious plants are enjoyed through the summer months, with their peppery flavors. Nasturtium flowers are also used in butters, soups and gumbo's as well.

Grew but not as well as some of the other colors of nasturtium.
On-going growing vigor, so far, great purchase. Will make a great bedding out plant for a spot with poor soil.
Sometimes there are issues with nasturtium germination, but I'd rank this as an exceptionally successful batch. Looking forward to the bloom season in the coming weeks!
