NASTURTIUM - TRAILING NASTURTIUM

Tropaeolum lobbianum - Used as a massed groundcover or basket/window box plant since the late 1600s. Trails 2 m with large round leaves and long-stemmed, long-spurred flowers in orange and red shades.

Originally from South America, nasturtiums have been cultivated in European gardens for over 300 years and still remain a favourite today. Louise Bebee Wilder writes in The Fragrant Path, ...the name Nasturtium, an old Latin word used by Pliny, was derived by him from narsus, the nose, and tortus, twisted, in reference to the supposed contortions of the nose caused by the hot pungent odour and taste of these flowers. Although there are scores of modern cultivars being marketed today, we offer several heirloom varieties whose merits alone attest to their continued existence. Excellent for container & basket culture with conscientious watering. Ample moisture is the key to staving off aphids, which are only attracted to the sick and the weak. D.S. Easy.
