Nasturtium' Ladybird Rose '


Stunning, unusual colour form of the petite nasturtium which makes an exotic cut flower and container plant for an ornamental veg garden or window box. One of my favourite discoveries

The most charming and delightful Nasturtium  with dusky rose flowers and dark ladybird spots on long 30" stem. Perfect any bouquet arranger 

Young leaves and blooms are very desirable for cheffs  for food decoration, and seed pods for pickling( taste like capers)
