Curious split petals make the flame-like flowers of Nasturium 'Phoenix' particularly eye catching. Prolific and free flowering, the blooms are produced in abundance in beautiful fiery shades of gold, orange and red. Like all Nasturtiums, it's easy to grow. Let its bushy stems spill from hanging baskets and window boxes or create a carpet of colour in beds and borders. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 35cm (14").
Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers � delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canap�s. For more details about edible flowers click here.
