Nasturtium Spitfire Flower Seeds (Tropaeolum Lobbianum) 20+Seeds
Nasturtium (Tropaeolum Lobbianum Spitfire) - Brilliant, orange-scarlet colored blooms shine out from trailing green foliage. What a beautiful display grown from Nasturtium seeds. Climbing Spitfire Nasturtium can be trained so that the vining foliage climbs up a short trellis or an obelisk for a cascade of bright blossoms. Hummingbirds will visit the beautiful plants often.
Spitfire Nasturtium does best when it is left alone. It will tolerate most any soil type, but prefers not to be fertilized. Over-fertilization will produce lovely foliage, but no flowers. Keep watered, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Nasturtium is used as a companion plant for the vegetable garden. It is said that the peppery-flavored leaves ward off many insects. Nasturtium Spitfire likes a full sun place in the garden in cooler climates. For the hottest regions, afternoon shade is preferable to Nasturtium plants. Tropaeolum Lobbianum plants will grow anywhere as an annual, but they will only survive as a perennial in frost-free zones.
