description for "Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum majus 'Alaska'"

These charming variegated nasturtiums have lovely lily-pad leaves whose cream and green striped marking make a wonderful color accent in the garden. The highly ornamental foliage is covered with pert, spurred flowers in bright gold, cheery orange, rich mahogany and salmon. Softly mounding, compact ‘Alaska’ nasturtium is an especially striking edging for flowerbeds or borders to contrast with green leaved plants. An attractive choice for showy patio containers, hanging baskets and window boxes. These old-fashioned nasturtiums with handsome variegated leaves are easy to grow in any well-drained soil. ‘Alaska’s softly mounding foliage and bright flowers will quickly fill garden beds and make a showy accent in planters or patio pots. Thinned to proper 10” spacing, they are a perfect disguise to cover fading bulb foliage in late spring. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
