Nasturtium Mahogany - Seeds & Bulbs

Nasturtium Mahogany
(Tropaeolum minus)

Nasturtium Mahogany's rich color is reminiscent of gleaming antique furniture -- it adds 'polish' to a garden bed, border, or container! The deep russet flowers and lime green leaves blend beautifully in any planting, filling in quickly where all-season color is needed. Like all nasturtiums, Mahogany is easy to grow from seed, and the young leaves and flowers are edible.
