This cultivar of Tropaeolum majus features large, round leaves with blooms that measure 2 inches across. It thrives in poor soil growing to about a foot tall; heavy watering will result in lots of foliage and little to no blooms. Nasturtium's non-toxic nature, large seeds, and rapid growth make it a great starter plant for kids to arrange and gift themselves. It also draws hummingbirds. USDA Zones 4-11TOH Tip:
This plant is edible. It has a peppery taste and can be used in salads.
