Tropaeolum minus ‘Alaska Ladybird Raspberry’

Description

A first in nasturtiums, creamy-green variegated leaves with red ladybird spotted, yellow flowers. An excellent trailing, ground cover plant, perfect for both baskets and to cover the ground with a burst of color! The edible blooms make a delicious and colorful garnish when added to salads, veggie trays, or hors d’oeuvres. Seeds can be pickled to make ‘poor mans capers.’ Compact plants grow 7-12” tall.  Full sun or part shade in hot climates. Photo courtesy of Dobies (UK).
