Nasturtium Empress of India
Tropaeolum nannum
​​​​​​​Description


 A Dwarf growing variety of Nasturtium that produces an abundance of mixed Crimson / Scarlet flowers that are held clear of the foliage. An easy to grow variety that will add a mass of colour!! Eventual height 10 - 14". This plant has the added bonus of having edible leaves, flowers and also the seeds (best when in the green). The flowers and leaves add a peppery taste to salads and are a great garnish, the Seeds can be added to Cream Cheese and also in sandwiches - my favourite is to have a few with some tasty smoked Salmon !!!
