Empress of India Nasturtium Red Flower Seeds (Tropaeolum nanum).

Minimum 25 seeds per package.

Unique, deep blue-green leaves are the perfect background for the dazzling, long-spurred 2 1/2" scarlet blooms. Compact plants only 1 ft. high are superb for hanging baskets and mixed plantings in kitchen gardens. Large seeds are easy to sow directly in the ground. Blooms until frost.

GARDEN HINTS: Use as companion plants for cabbage, cucumbers and herbs. Helps in repelling whitefly and cabbage caterpillars.

They also do very well in pots, hanging baskets and well drain planter boxes. We enjoy them in salads, not only do they make the salad look so inviting with the beautiful flower color and green leaves but the taste is very fresh with a peppery flavor.

They seem to not like our 5pm hot sun come July here in North Texas so I plant mine in part shade and it does very well.
