description for "Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum majus Whirlybird Series"

These unique nasturtiums have upward facing, 2 _ inch semi-double blossoms in a showy range of 7 warm shades: cherry rose, creamy yellow, soft peach, tangerine, mahogany, scarlet and rich gold. The Whirlybirds Series is perfect for patio containers, window boxes, or to soften garden edges and corners with vibrant, free-blooming, flowers and softly mounding lily pad-shaped leaves. As a wonderful bonus, both the bright flowers and leaves are deliciously edible with a spicy watercress flavor. These lovely, many colored nasturtiums are easy to grow in well-drained soil. They provide quick brilliant color in beds and make a luxuriant show in planters or patio pots. Combine with alyssum, creeping daisies, salvia or other summer annuals. Nasturtiums' abundant foliage will also cover fading bulb leaves. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
