EXCLUSIVE - These free flowering mounding plants adorn themselves with spurless semi-double blooms in warm vibrant shades of coppery-red, like the glowing embers of a vivid summer sunset. Shining above deep green, lily pad-like leaves, Copper Sunset blossoms act as welcoming beacons for hungry hummingbirds and are perfect for filling garden beds or baskets. Use their edible leaves and flowers in the kitchen as spicy-tasting garnishes for sandwiches, salads and seafood.

EASY TO START OUTDOORS

Sow seeds in spring once all danger of frost is over in full sun (or part shade in hot climates). Nasturtiums need no added fertilizer in most soils. Poke seeds into well-worked soil about 1 inch deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. Press soil firmly over the seeds and keep moist. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to 10 inches apart as mounding plants need ample room.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow 2 seeds each in individual 4-inch pots of well-drained seed starting mix 3 weeks before last expected frost date. Cover 1 inch deep. Provide a strong light source. When seedlings have several sets of leaves pinch out the weaker seedling, leaving 1 per pot. When weather is evenly in the 50°F (10°C) range, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Transplant seedlings into the garden 10 inches apart in full sun.

 

GROWING NOTES

These brilliantly colored mounding nasturtiums are reliable and easy to tuck into any well-drained spot. Except in very poor soil, nasturtiums will grow and bloom readily with no added fertilizer. Carefully thinned to proper spacing, they are a perfect disguise to cover fading bulb foliage in late spring and their softly draping leaves and vivid flowers will quickly fill garden beds or containers.
