Tropaeolum minus ‘Empress of India’

Description

Brilliant, high-quality crimson-scarlet flowers on dark blue-green foliage make a striking contrast in beds, borders, or containers. Blooms May to October, forming dense mounds of color and attracting bees and hummingbirds to its long-spurred ruby blossoms.  The bright blooms are deliciously edible, with a spicy flavor, like watercress – use them whole to garnish salads, or chop and add to cheese spreads or rice dishes.  Grows 11-12” tall.  Full sun or part shade in hotter climates.
