Nasturtium Alaska

Beautiful marbled foliage adds to the desirability of Alaska! Every salad should have edible nasturtium flowers and unique Alaska foliage in it. Alaska's somewhat tame growth habit makes it great for hanging baskets and borders. Grown as a perennial in climates with no frost. Rabbits hate nasturtiums and keep away.
