The dark foliage of this variety shows up the brilliant vermillion flowers to advantage. Nasturtium make excellent short term ground cover for areas not quite filled in young gardens, they also make wonderful potted specimens , cascading over the edges of pots with summer exhuberance. The flowers and foliage are delicious in salads.

30cm high x  60cm wide.
