description for "Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum majus 'Creamsicle'"

'Creamsicle's beautiful flowers are reminiscent of the soft swirled colors of orange sherbet and French vanilla ice cream, with throats etched in deep crimson. The free-flowering, top-setting blossoms float in abundance above softly mounding, blue-green, lily pad-shaped foliage. These uniquely colored flowers create a lovely effect, different than the deep, bright colors of most other nasturtiums. Alluring 'Creamsicle' is a fine choice for garden beds and borders and is also a perfect choice for container plantings. These mounding 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 and gladden garden beds or containers. In mild winter climates, sow seeds again in July for late summer blooms. Both leaves and flowers are tasty, spicy-sweet additions to salads and sandwiches. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
