Looking for a Nasturtium that's both eye-catching and easy to care for? Look no further than Empress of India! This dwarf, non-trailing variety shows stunning scarlet flowers and deep blue-green leaves, making it a real standout in the garden. And its compact, mounded habit is perfect for containers, so you can enjoy its beauty even if you don't have a lot of space. Empress of India is an heirloom variety that dates back to the Victorian era, so you can rest assured that it's tried and true. Edible flowers make the most beautiful salads, and the spicy flavor is a great addition to any dish. Bumble bees love nasturtiums, so you'll be sure to get plenty of pollinators in your garden. 4g ~ 25 seeds.
