Whirlybird is the earliest of the nasturtiums to bloom and the most colourful in form. These jewel-toned 5-8 cm (2-3”) blooms hold their faces straight up, well above the dark green foliage, for maximum colour show. The plant remains fairly compact, giving you lush flowers and foliage on a non-invasive habit. Nasturtiums make excellent bedding plants and are also good for growing in rockeries, troughs, tubs or large hanging baskets. All parts of the plant are edible, use to brighten up salads or use in stir fries, flowers have a peppery taste.
Adaptable to most and conditions, prefers well-drained moist soil but also tolerates nutritionally poor soil.
