description for "Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum majus 'Cherries Jubilee'"

These vibrant cherry-rose colored nasturtiums are a special treat in the garden. 'Cherries Jubilee' has soft, lipstick-colored flowers shaded from light to deep rosy-red, a very unique hue for nasturtiums. The delicious blossoms of 'Cherries Jubilee' glow in profusion above a sea of highly ornamental blue-green, lily-pad-shaped leaves. The free-flowering plants have a mounding habit, perfect to fill and soften garden beds or corners, cover bare spots, or cascade gracefully from your favorite patio pots or hanging baskets. Hummingbirds adore them. These mounding garden nasturtiums are reliable and easy to tuck into any well-drained spot. They are a perfect disguise to cover fading bulb foliage in late spring. Their softly draping leaves and wonderfully colored flowers will quickly fill garden beds or containers. In mild winter climates, sow seeds again in early July for late summer blooms. Leaves and flowers are tasty, peppery additions to salads and sandwiches. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
