NASTURTIUM GLORIOUS GLEAM MIXED COLORS
Tropaeolum majus. Heirloom
Annual. Cheery yellow, orange, and red blossoms and a semi-trailing habit make Glorious Gleam an excellent choice for hanging baskets or patio containers. Very easy to grow. The pleasantly flavored flowers and young leaves have a spicy flavor like watercress and can be eaten as a garnish or in salads.
