Nasturtium (Tropaeolum Majus Orchid Flame) - These beautiful flowers have bright yellow with red edges. As the plants keep developing, the red creeps farther and farther across the bloom, creating all sorts of uniquely beautiful patterns. No two flowers will be just alike on this unique nasturtium.

Orchid Flame is a trailing variet spreading or cascading 3 to 4 feet tall; however, it only reaches 12 inches in height. This makes it a great choice for hanging baskets or trellises. It is also a quick grower  blooming heavily by early summer and keeps on going until the weather turns cold.

The flowers on Orchid Flame Nasturtium are unlike those of any other in the garden. Measuring 2 inches across, they stand out amongst any other flowers. Like all nasturtiums, they are edible, making lovely embellishments on cakes and salads. You can also use them hanging baskets, beds, containers, ground covers, as an ornamental, or a climbing vine. Their only downfall is they do not make a good cut flower.

Nasturtiums also makes a fine companion to vegetables in the garden by attracting bees and repelling destructive pests, particularly around Brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, mustard and collard greens, etc.). Orchid Flame Nasturtium is also useful as a barrier planting around your tomatoes and cucumbers, and some gardeners find it a helpful pest deterrent when ringed around young fruit trees.

Nasturtium is easy to grow from seed. Nick or soak the seeds before sowing. Then direct sow into the garden or the final container in which they will grow, or start them indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last anticipated spring frost in your area. Expect germination to take a week or so. The Orchid Flame Nasturtium plants need full sun for best flowering; they will grow in part shade, but the blooms will not be as numerous or large. Poor soil often works better than rich for promoting bloom strength.

Tropaeolum Majus

Nasturtium (Tropaeolum Majus Phoenix Mix) - It has taken us a few years, but we have finally added this very popular Phoenix nasturtium to our portfolio.  Instead of the usual rounded shape, the petals of every bloom on this flowering plant are divided into 3 to 4 points, like flames or fishtails.  The blooms arise in both bright and pastel shades and even some bicolors giving you the classic golds, oranges, and reds of nasturtiums as well as the less common creams, peaches, and salmons. And that's not all! Many petals even have a stroke of mahogany near the base.  The ivy-leaf foliage makes this the perfect plant for trellises or trailing from a hanging basket.  You might even want to test the vines out as a cutflower for draping arrangement material.

Not only are these nasturtium flowers beautiful, they are also profuse. They will begin blooming in early summer and continue clear until frost in most areas and will grow in a variety of habitats. Some nasturtiums are vining, others bushy, but Phoenix is both! You can let its stems trail from hanging baskets and flowerpots, or you can grow it vertically in beds and containers, where it will mound instead of spreading. Generally about 12 inches high if mounded and 14 inches wide, it will adjust a bit to fit the habit you choose for it—lower and more trailing in baskets, higher and more compact in beds.  If allowing to vine, you can expect it to reach up to six feet!

Nasturtiums are grown as a climbing vine, a flowering plant, and for its uses as an herb. The flowers and leaves are edible, making beautiful additions to salads and handsome garnishes on the plate. Nasturtium has a peppery bite not unlike watercress (one of its common names is Indian Cress), and is best used in savory dishes. Like all nasturtiums, Phoenix is a splendid companion to vegetables in the garden attracting beneficial bees to the garden and other insects.
