Begin the Nasturtium season a little sooner with dazzling Whirlybird, the earliest to bloom and the most colorful in form! These jewel-toned 2- to 3-inch blooms hold their faces straight up, well above the dark green foliage, for maximum color show. The best for baskets, it is also a fine choice for any container as well as beds and borders. The plant remains fairly compact, giving you lush flowers and foliage on a non-invasive habit. This mix contains rose, red, orange, gold, and cream blooms.
Both the leaves and flowers are edible, making a colorful garnish for salads and formal meals. They have a tangy, peppery flavor you will love.
Easy to grow, Whirlybird can be direct-sown in any soil, even poor, dry ones. The best flowering is in cool weather. Pkt is 25 seeds.
