Nasturtium, Empress of India

Tropaeolum majus


Full to Partial Sun

Bloom Early Summer to Fall

16”-20” Tall

Plant 8”-12” Apart


A Victorian era heirloom with a beautifully rich red flower offset by dark green leaves. The plant has a mounding habit, making it especially good for containers or edges. The flowers are edible with a spicy sweet taste, and you can pickle the flower buds for delicious caper – like flavor.  Nasturtiums grow well in moderately fertile soils and deadheading will promote more blooms.


Nasturtium, Empress of India
