Nasturtium, Alaska is a popular variety with cream marbled leaves. A delightful subject for summer bedding, pots and urns.
Not only decorative but they have culinary properties too.
Very useful in the kitchen as the leaves, flowers and seeds are edible. The flowers because of their particularly bright colour look wonderful in a salad, the leaves have a peppery taste and high vitamin C content. The seeds also make a good substitute for capers.
Flourishes in poorer soil. Self-Seeding.
