Nasturtium Ladybird Cream Purple Spot. Beautiful, unique, eye-catching cream flowers with bright purple central markings on dwarf, bushy plants reaching 8′.
One of the longest flowering nasturtium flowering vigorously through to the first frost. Will grow in any well-drained soil in full sun. Hardy annual. Edible flowers, like all other nasturtiums, taste slightly peppery.
Germination: 10-12 days, soaking seeds overnight aids germination Seed Planting Depth: Sow 1/2” deep Starting Indoors: Start indoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 60-65ºF soil temperatures until germination. Using individual biodegradable peat/cow pots/paper pots helps to reduce root damage when transplanting. Transplant 8-10” apart after the last frost date. Sowing Outdoors: 2 weeks before the last frost into early summer Spacing: 8-12” Growth Habit: Trailing Height and Width: 10-12” x 10-12" Light Needs: Full sun Soil Needs: Average, well-drained. An abundance of nitrogen in the soil promotes excess foliage with limited blooms Approximate days to flower from seed: 55-65 days
