Nasturtiums can be climbers, or they can grow bushy and low to the ground, protecting the soil and retaining moisture. Vibrant orange, peach and yellow flowers last all summer and into the fall. Edible flowers add spice to a salad, as well as feeding hummingbirds and bees, and acting as an aphid and cabbage moth caterpillar trap to protect leafy greens and brassicas. Open pollinated.
