description for "Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum majus 'Buttercream'"

The lovely semi-double blossoms of 'Buttercream' - a tropical-looking pastel variety - seem to float over the pretty rounded green leaves that remind us of water lilies. 'Buttercream' nasturtiums grow into a softly mounding form that drapes gracefully to fill in garden beds and borders. They are especially lush looking in window boxes and containers. The abundant creamy blossoms and deep green leaves make tasty edible garnishes. A customer favorite for many decades. 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 creamy flowers will quickly fill garden beds or containers. In mild winter climates, sow seeds again by mid-June for late summer blooms. Leaves and flowers are tasty additions to salads and sandwiches. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
