description for "Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum majus 'Vanilla Berry'"

These lovely new nasturtiums have custard-colored blossoms, each marked at the throat with a delicate foxpaw etching of deep strawberry. The top-setting, spurred flowers of ‘Vanilla Berry’ shine above blue-green lilypad-shaped leaves, and the mounding plants drape softly to cover empty garden spaces or gracefully fill in window boxes and patio planters. Carefree ‘Vanilla Berry’s leaves and blossoms are edible with a watercress-like flavor, perfect as a spicy garnish to top salads or fancy open-faced sandwiches. These softly colored, intricately marked nasturtiums are reliable and easy to tuck into any well drained spot. Except in very poor soil, nasturtiums will grow and bloom readily with no added fertilizer. The mounding plants do a find job of covering bare spots or hiding spent bulb foliage. Use the pretty edible flowers and leaves to add zest to salads and party sandwiches. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
