'Peach Melba' nasturtium plants are compact, growing ten to twelve inches tall, and great for borders, filling bulb beds, pots, hanging baskets, or other containers. Named after the dessert, 'Peach Melba' produces blossoms that are a pale, creamy-yellow with maroon to orange colored markings near the centers; like drops of raspberry sauce on fresh peaches.
Originally from the cool highlands of South America, nasturtiums prefer full sun, dry, well-drained or sandy soils, are somewhat drought tolerant, and tender to frost. Nice as cut flowers. The young leaves, flowers, and even unripe seed pods have peppery flavor and make an interesting addition to garden salads.
An annual, or tender perennial in some warm locations. Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 14 to 16 seeds.
