Nasturtium 'Jewel Mix' (Tropaeolum majus)
Jewel Mix Nasturtium is a self-seeding, easy to grow annual that displays a combination of brilliant red, orange, and yellow flowers that have a pleasant aroma. Plants form lovely, billowing 2 ft. mounds of round, green leaves. The long-spurred flower blossoms attract hummingbirds, and the young nasturtium leaves and flowers are rich in vitamin c and are edible, adding a delicious peppery flavor to salads. And although they are edible rabbits don't care for them. They thrive in full sun to partial shade and grow very well in poor, dry soils from early spring to late fall, making them one of the best mild-weather annual flowers for your garden.
